HOKA Highland Fling

27/04/2013

Saturday April 27th saw the 8th running of the HOKA Highland Fling - a 53mile trail race run along the southern part of the West Highland Way, starting in Milgavie and finishing in the village of Tyndrum. It is a popular race with the club, but unfortunately this year the club had no relay teams taking part, though 5 members completed the scenic course solo.

This year, the race was being used as the 2013 UK and Scottish Athletics Ultra Trail Championship race and so for the first time, all ultrarunners started together at 6am, an hour ahead of the relay teams. Conditions on the day were great for some good running, and indeed the course record was lowered by 9 minutes, with both of the top 2 men finishing under the previous record (set in 2011). This year saw the entry list increased with 416 participants finishing the whole race.

First home for Dumfries Running Club was Jacob Tangey, who worked his way steadily up the field in the latter stages, to finish in 36th position, in a time of 9:21:40. Next came Craig Malcolmson in 100th place in 10:25:04, shortly followed by Seb Pflanz, 111th in 10:33:29. Alistair Bloxham came home in 144th place in 10:53:24, with Frank Skachill rounding off the club runners in 371st place in 13:59:47.

DRC still retains the mixed relay record set in 2009 and the LV50 record set in 2011.
