Greenmantle Dash, Broughton

02/01/2014

For Ranjit Thomas this will always be remembered as the race where he was beaten by the Pink Panther – a hill runner making the most of the opportunity to wear fancy dress at the annual Greenmantle Dash at Broughton Village near Biggar...

 

Ranjit, David Parrish and Sue Jeffery joined the other 112 runners for the challenging 3.3km sprint, which included obstacles such as hurdling a wall (optional); crossing a small but swollen river (not optional); an ankle deep marsh field followed by the steep 200m climb to the summit marker.  After the leg-trembling climb, runners were rewarded with a rapid and slippery descent down the hill to the final stretch on tarmac road and then along to the finish where the Broughton Brewery provided each runner with a well earned free pint.

David put in the best performance for the club and finished in a time of 20mins 18secs, followed by Ranjit (in questionable 5-finger footwear) with a time of 25min 31secs. Sue was not far behind and was very pleased with a finishing time of 27mins 49secs.

"Big thanks to Ranjit for encouraging DRC runners to participate in hill events in the region. This one was enjoyed by all and is certainly recommended for anyone wanting a tough but fun and varied off-road race".
