Moffat 15K

11/07/2019

The Moffat 15k Race is always a popular target for many members of Dumfries Running Club and a lower than usual turnout of 20 joined the field for the event on Tuesday evening. Effectively the race is split into three separate parts with the first section a relatively easy 4 miles followed by a 200 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. Whilst the sun did not put in much of an appearance, the constant rain combined with a warm and muggy evening which provided challenging conditions.

The fastest runner who gained maximum points in this leg of the club grand prix series was club chairman Sandy Shankland who was the first over 60 runner and who beat all the younger members of the club in 18th place in 66.30. Michael McKean had a strong run one place behind in 66.52, thirty seconds and two places in front of James Kellock with Stuart Gillespie in close attention in 67.52.

In her final race before she enters a new age category Sian Finlay ran well as third female in 69.27 and fast finishing Ranjit Thomas overtook many runners on the downhill section in 70.05. Stephen Mohan had a good run in 70.24 overtaking both Mike Jardine and his brother Brian on the downhill to beat them by fifteen and twenty seconds respectively. Les Hill had a steady run in 72.30 and finished a minute in front of David Burns.

Anne MacFarlane was the first supervet woman in 76.34 and she was made to work hard for her prize by Gemma Leadbetter who ran strongly less than a minute behind. In his longest ever club race newcomer Robert Gordon ran very well in 80.46 as did Kirsteen Kellock in 86.08 who was less than 100 metres in front of Andy Davis. Hamish MacDonald was pleased with his run in 87.04 and finished a minute and a half in front of Sean McGleenan and both June and Rhiannon Breed who ran together thoroughly enjoyed their runs in 103.10, cheered on by their clubmates.
