Doonhamer 10k

Sunday morning in Dock Park in Dumfries was the setting for the 2nd Doonhamer 10k. The sun was splitting the skies, unusual for Dumfries this year, as Race Director Val Mitchell’s well organised race got under way. 29 Dumfries Running Club members took part out of a total 155 finishers, and as usual our runners put on a great show for our home town. Jo was first Lady, Alan 3rd male, and both Jo and Alan were leading the teams that won both womens and mens team prizes. Sian Finlay gained another new PB in what is a great season for her, and evergreen Sandy Shankland completed Gold Standard Plus performances in every distance over the season when winning first male V60. Full finishing places and prizes attached below and a full report will appear in the Standard on Friday

Club Championship 2015 - Haddington Half Marathon

Haddington half marathon was the venue for this year's DRC Club Championship titles. 13 DRC members made the trip over for the East coast of Scotland race last Saturday, and all acquitted themselves splendidly. The course  was windy and hilly with temperatures reaching 24c, which made for a very challenging test of stamina. Jo Zakrzewski won the DRC ladies championship in an impressive time of 1.21.52 and was also First Lady in the half marathon, finishing in 11th place overall.  Alan Baxter finished alongside Jo in 12th place, first male over 40, and 2015 DRC men’s champion.
