The Dalbeattie 10k

08/08/2019

Last Tuesday the Dalbeattie 10k was selected as a counter for the Dumfries Running Club best all-rounder championships and this meant an excellent turnout of 26 club members took part. 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 with maximum points was Colin Holden in 38.50 and as an indication of the severity of the course he was one of only four runners to break the 40 minute mark. Adam Dickie in 8th had a good run in 41.30 as did Michael McKean and Stuart Gillespie with Michael in 42.42 a stride ahead of Stuart. Club chairman Sandy Shankland battled through pain in 44.41 in 23rd place and over took third woman Fiona Robertson and Brian Mohan by 18 and 25 seconds respectively.

Joe Malone in 45.35 had a positive run as did Mark Hall in 46.34 who finished a minute in front of Stephen Mohan. Gemma Leadbetter in 49.00 headed off Anne MacFarlane by 55 seconds and Neil Moffat in 50.17 nudged ahead of Robert Gordon by 10 seconds and two personal bests were gained by Cameron Leaney and Karen Littlejohn in 51.42 and 51.49 respectively. Hamish MacDonald had a good run in 54.59. The happiest finishers were Amie Forster and Peri Wallach on their second ever club race who were delighted to run together in 60.11, a few steps in front of Fiona Jardine. Margaret Gray ran well in 61.35 a minute ahead of newcomer Lisa Cowley  and two in front of Sean McGleenan. Catherine Simsheimer enjoyed her second club race after last month’s Gelston run in 66.31 and debutant Campbell Maughan and Fiona MacFarlane thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of such a steep route. Over coffee, tea and cakes in the local church hall future race plans were discussed and thoughts now turn to the next club event, the annual barbeque at Nunholm on Friday.
