Hash Run Thursday 19 September 2019

As Elaine mentioned in her recent Newsletter, the club will be holding a Hash Run (now on Thursday 19 September). Designed as a fun event, we hope that lots of you can make it along to the Run. Here are some details in order to give you an idea what it will involve:-

Aim of the run: For everyone to finish the course as close together as possible. The task of the speedy runners at the front is to figure out the route for the runners behind.

Shortest route: 6km (if you take no incorrect turns) Longest route: 12.3km (you've taken every wrong turn!)

Meeting point: car park on Links Rd North/near Foodmek in Tayport at 6.30

We will then jog 1km to the start with a view to starting as a group at 6.45

The run should take around 45minutes to complete.

Finding your way around the course:

The route will not be shown to you before you run.

You will be set off down a path. There are three choices at each junction: 1. No marking - just keep running straight! 2. One arrow - follow it! 3. Two arrows - this will give you choices. The runners at the front can choose which way to go, you can separate or stay together - it's up to you!

Once you've chosen your route you will either come to another arrow (congratulations you've gone the right way!) or a cross (X) (oops you've gone the wrong way). You do not need to all stay as a group, the idea is that the faster runners run ahead to work out the route.

If you have gone the correct way you must somehow get the message back to the runners behind you, either by running back or shouting back. Please ensure that the message regarding the right route is passed back to everyone so this is everyone's responsibility - leave no (wo)man behind!

If you've chosen the incorrect route then you must run back to the junction and choose another route.

Hint: a good way of making sure that everyone picks the right route is to scuff out the incorrect arrow at the junction so that only one remains.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there, and making it round the course as a true DRR team!

Grand Prix 2019

The marvellous and eco-friendly Ceres 8 took place last Thursday, and DRR had a fantastic and enthusiastic contingent through to run what is a challenging but very picturesque 8 mile route. There were a number of prize winners from the club, as well as a fair number of PBs on the night. Well done everyone!

Hot on the heels of Ceres, we have the next Grand Prix event on Sunday 8 September with the Stirling 10k. This is a great race, with a very broad range of runners. It's the chance for us mere mortals to rub shoulders with the fastest in Scotland (admittedly perhaps only for a few metres!), and is always a very popular day. In recent years the club has had a huge number of members take part, and this year looks likely to be no different.

Aside from the scale of the race, it is one of the flattest and fastest in Scotland, and so great potential for a PB. The race starts in Stirling itself, heads along some very wide roads into the countryside (giving you a glaimpse of the Wallace Monument) and back in, with great crowd support both at the start/finish and as you run through Stirling streets.

If you haven't already entered, there is still time, here is the link to the Central Athletics page with more info Stirling 10k

It genuinely is a fabulous race, certainly one of my favourites, and we look forward to another great DRR day out.

Dundee DRAM & Half DRAM/Ceres 8

Yesterday saw an amazing group of DRRs take part in the Dundee DRAM and Half DRAM. There were fantastic runs from everyone, too many to mention individually. It was also great to see so many DRRs out marshalling and cheering the runners on, and it created a great atmosphere for the race. Well done everyone, a great advert for the Club and for running in Dundee generally.

If anyone would be interested in putting together a race report, please feel free to do so, and we can share it around the Club. Just send it to me if you like (Michael).

The next Grand Prix race is Ceres 8. A great race, although the word undulating comes to mind. The race is on Tuesday 13 August and there are still a number of places available through Entry Central.

We hope to see lots of you on the night, DRR members account for just under a third of the field as we speak, let's make it another marvellous blue and white night!
