Dalbeattie 10K

16/08/2018

Last Tuesday the Dalbeattie 10k was selected as Grand Prix event and this meant an excellent turnout of 33 club members. 

The course is very challenging with several steep climbs and this meant that times were not the fastest but the whole event was so well organised with a superb community involvement which supported and encouraged all who were taking part.

The fastest club runner in second place overall out of 112 was Alan Baxter in 38.02, only ten seconds behind race winner Cameron Muir. Colin Holden had an excellent run in 38.48 as first supervet and Lisa Finlay was the fastest female runner in 39.41, ten seconds ahead of Kevin Conchar and the fact that only 8 runners were under 40 minutes gives some idea of the difficulty of the course.

Kevin McCaig kept up his recent superb form in 40.17, thirty seconds ahead of newcomer Brendan Muldowney. Simon Mortlock continued his good form in 40.56 a minute and three places in front of Adam Dickie. Ranjit Thomas in 43.04 finished a few strides in front of Sandy Shankland with Sian Finlay in very close attendance. In a further close race, Stuart Gillespie in 43.59 was 50 metres in front of Mike Jardine who himself was a similar distance ahead of Brian Mohan whilst Allan Manson, in his first club race for a while was pleased to dip under the 45 minute mark.

Stephen Mohan and Anne McFarlane finished in 47.50 narrowly in front of Sue Jeffrey and David Burns whilst Neil Moffat was pleased to finish in under 50mins. James Brash found the course to be tough but was pleased to finish in 52.21 a hundred metres in front of Andy Davis and Alice McPherson in 53.41 nosed in front of Karen Littlejohn. Fiona Jardine had a good run in 54.39 ahead of both Hamish Macdonald and Saty Burns and Elaine McMeikan in 57.01 was a minute and a half in front of Sean McGleenan. Jennifer Ross enjoyed her run in 60.29 as did both Rhiannon Breed and Jane Scott and a special mention has to go to Franc Karpo who was forced to slow down during the race and as he made his way back to the finish offered much needed support and encouragement for his clubmates.
