Stranraer half marathon

15/03/2016

The first race of the 2016 Dumfries Running Club grand prix series saw a smaller than usual total of 15 club members take part in the Stranraer half marathon and the accompanying 4 mile race.

Despite a clear, dry and sunny day this is not the easiest of courses with a number of steep hills to catch the unwary or to slow down those who started too quickly. After a solid training programme over the winter a number of club runners were keen to test out their early season form whilst for others reaching the finishing line was the main objective.

The fastest club performer was male club captain Alan Baxter who was 3rd overall out of 111 finishers in 79.36 which bodes well for upcoming races and he managed to hold off his friend and training partner Kevin Conchar by 18 seconds. Niall Campbell was 7th overall in 82.45 and this trio won the prize as the first male team. Kevin McCaig kept up his good recent form as vet 55 winner in 84.38 and Les Hill had a very encouraging run in 89.06.

Ranjit Thomas ran well in 96.12 to head off clubmate James Kellock by two seconds with a sprint on the finishing straight with Stephen Mohan two minutes behind. Alison McKean had a superb run in 102.47 which was a PB by two minutes and earned her an age group prize. David Burns did well in 106.46 in his return to fitness after injury. Sheila Graham produced an excellent run on her debut over the distance in 114mins finishing two minutes in front of Fiona Jardine with both winning prizes as well. Bob Quin did well on a step up in distance to finish a few strides away from the 2 hour mark.In the earlier four mile run, Kirsteen Kellock was the fastest female,along with Theresa Lavery, and was a positive encouragement to daughters Heather and Iona in the children’s run.
