SVHC Road Relays, Strathclyde Park

26/01/2014

On Sunday two teams from Dumfries Running Club travelled to Strathclyde Park to take part in the Scottish Veteran Harriers relay races...

This long standing event involves each runner completing a 3.8 mile circuit of the loch before handing on to their team mate and many clubs sent very strong teams to take part in a highly competitive event. This event in 2012 was won by the DRC womens team, the first national title ever won by the club.

Despite the competitive edge to this race it is a very sociable and friendly event with many cheering on those who were trying to run their fastest in very difficult conditions. The first leg runners had driving rain and a fierce headwind to contend with but the rain eased and the wind dropped for later runners.

On the highly competitive leg one, Jim Buchanan got his team off to a flying start, with a time of 21.10 in 7th place out of 48 teams, before handing on to Jacob Tangey who was only 19 seconds slower but was overtaken by 3 others. Kevin Conchar in 21.20 gained a place on his lap and Club captain Alan Baxter had an excellent run in 21.06 to bring the team home in 7th place overall.

The second DRC team had more realistic ambitions. Graeme Cross, on his first ever outing on leg one had an excellent start in 19th place in 22.06 and handed over to Les Hill who got round safely in 25.20. On the third leg, Steven Bonn maintained his recent good form in 25.02 before handing over to Stephen Mohan who brought the team home in 31st place in 25.22.
