Moffat Hill Race

The Moffat 15k Race is always a popular target for many members of Dumfries Running Club and 29 joined the field of 140 for the event last Tuesday. Effectively the race is split into three separate parts with the first section a relatively easy 4 miles followed by a 150 metre climb within a mile at the Devil’s Beeftub with the reward for tired runners a 4 mile downhill run back to the Ram at Moffat.

Mabie Forest Handicap Run Monday 18th July

The results for the 4.5 miles Mabie Handicap held on Monday 18th July are available here.

19 people took part and numerous members helped with the marshalling and time keeping. Thank you to those who helped. The weather was great yet again and Gemma opened the Bike Shed café so we had a good evening. This time all runners were not allowed to wear watches with the prize going to the runner nearest (but not under) their handicap time. With Sandy Shankland finishing 10secs under his handicap time the next runner to appear was Liz Smart who duly claimed the prize for being closest to her predicted time.
Over £40 was raised for the SANDs charity on the night.
Many thanks go to Les Hill for organising this event and for marking the course route.

Dumfries Running Club members Tri ‘A Day in the Lakes’

On Sunday 26th June three members of Dumfries Running Club were at Ullswater in the Lake District for the aptly named ‘A Day in the Lakes’ triathlon. It was the first half Ironman distance triathlon for Mhairi Duff, Dave Stewart and Dawn McDonald and this was no gentle introduction! Along with 349 other triathletes including friends and training partners from Dumfries Harriers, the trio took on a swim in the rough and icy cold water of Ullswater straight into a 56 mile road cycle including the Kirkstone Pass and Shap Fell, and to finish – a 13 mile off road fell run. The triathlon is billed as being one of the toughest in the country.

2011 Monthly Handicap Race Results after 7th Race

After the 7th handicap series 5K race for 2011 held on Thursday 7th June Liz Smart still retains her lead at the top of the leaderboard with 217 points from a maximum of 250 from 5 races.

In July the maximum 50 points available and first to finish was Val Coltart in 25:58. The fastest time on the night was an excellent 17:47 by Jo Zakrzewski.

The updated results are available here.

The August 5K handicap is scheduled for Thursday 4th August.

Mabie Handicap Race

The results for the 4.5 miles Mabie Handicap held on Monday 20th June are available here.

29 people took part and 5 members helped with the marshalling and time keeping. Thank you to those who helped.

The weather was great and Gemma opened the Bike Shed café so we had a good evening.

Another handicap over the same route will either be held on Monday 18th July. Meet at the Bike Shed between 6 and 6.15 to wander along the track for less than half a mile to get to the start of the 4.5 mile circuit.

This next handicap will also have the aim to raise some money for charity. The charity will be Sands – Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths

There will be a small entry fee plus a penalty if you over estimate your expected time and you will not be allowed to wear a watch!

Entry fee will be £1 and if you are faster than your estimated time by between one second and one minute you will forfeit £1.

If you are faster than your estimated time by over one minute you will forfeit £2.

Hopefully this will make you all focus on trying to get your time closer to the mark rather than making it easy for yourself.

This way if you do run faster you should be delighted and happy to pay the price for achieving a good time.

The person closest to their estimated time, but no faster than estimated, will receive a modest prize.
