Edinburgh Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

14/04/2013

The Edinburgh Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon saw six Dumfries Running Club members participating on a day in which runners around the country experienced arguably the worst racing conditions of the year so far...

There was driving rain with a constant 20 mph wind in the Capital, with gusts up to 50 mph in exposed places of which there were plenty. Mile markers were blown away, portaloos capsized and barricades blown over. Unfortunately this led to huge queues to reclaim baggage as the baggage tent was deemed unsafe, with some cold and exhausted runners having to wait for over an hour to get back into warm dry clothes.

Under the conditions, Leslie Wells and Jo  Pennington did well to stick resolutely to their task and finished in 2:19:09 and 2:20:13 respectively.

Ahead of them was Jo Needham with a gritty performance of 2:04:15. Jo put a real effort in down the Royal Mile drawing from the support and applause of a very respectful crowd.

Alison Groat with 1:52 saved something for the end and had a great finish, passing many on the way to the finishing line.

Despite the conditions, Sarah Queen's time of 1:38:31 was three minutes faster than that which she recorded last year, and with this time being just outside her personal best it demonstrated a continued improvement in recent half marathons.

Danny Queen was 99th finisher in a time of 1:30:54 which also saw him earn a 2nd place in his age category.
