Strathkinnes - Blebo Craigs Race - Rachel Callaghan

Last Wednesday 22 road runners ventured across the water to Fife to compete in the second race of the popular Fife AC Midweek Series. The 4.5 mile race, falling somewhere in the spectrum of ‘pleasantly undulating’ to ‘hilly’, is run over mixed terrain and posed a pre-race conundrum of optimum footwear. The good conditions meant that lovely views over the Eden estuary could be enjoyed by those with enough energy at the top of the last climb.

The race was won by Kieran Cooper of St Andrews University in 24:02 and Heather Anderson of Fife AC was first female finisher with a time of 28:38. There were some impressive performances by road runners throughout the field, with Mark Bell coming in 4th overall in a super-speedy time of 26:14, followed by Matty Low in 13th and Martin Hutchinson in 18th place.

Equally strong races were had by Dundee women, lead home by Jennifer Massie who sped her way round to a course PB of 30:36 and 5th female finisher, backed up by Alison McNeillly in 6th and Elaine Omand in 8th.

Further down the field Fiona Callaghan regained sibling bragging rights following her defeat on the slopes of Normans Law a few days previously and scooping a course PB in process. Notable performances were also had by Sarah Young and Grant Whyttock, competing less than a week after representing the club in the London Marathon.

Congratulation to everyone who competed - full DRR results are below. Next the series delves deeper into Fife with the Hill of Tarvit race in Ceres, good luck to all competing.
