Durisdeer Hill Race

16/06/2012

The Durisdeer course is recorded as 16km with 1150m of climb, although competitors with GPS report that it measures slightly shorter. There are 3 main phases of the course: the first 2km sees a rapid 350m ascent of Black Hill, with the course then dropping steeply down to a road and river crossing at about the starting level. The next 5km loops round the back of Steygail, with 2 ascents of 120m and 230m over passes along the way. The final 6km starts with a 370m climb to Well Hill, followed by an undulating ridge run to Black Hill before descending to the finish along the route of the initial climb.

18 hours of heavy rain preceding the race had made the steep descents and contouring a bit more tricky than normal but overall the underfoot conditions were pretty good. The rain eased slightly for the race and visibility was good.

First home for Dumfries Running Club was David Parrish in 24th place, finishing in 1:46:14, with Jacob Tangey next in 1:57:30 for 53rd place. Seb Pflanz and Craig Malcolmson ran in together for 90th/91st in 2:11:04, with Colin Hossack not far back in 107th in a time of 2:16:58.
