Tuesday night rota

As discussed at the AGM, we are going to start having a beginners' runner/ tail runner on Tuesday nights. The majority of people at the AGM said they would be happy to take their turn with this. Here is the rotafor the first three months. Please check the rota when it is put up, as I will just go through the membership list so that everyone has a turn. If I pick you and you can't make that date or really don't want to do it, let me know and we can change it. I'm giving you plenty of notice so that hopefully people can plan for the night they've been asked to do.

Tour de Tayside

As you all know, our club multi-stage run is happening this Sunday, 16th August. It is 34.5 miles in total, with 5 legs. The whole route is on road so you can run or cycle (or do a bit of both). The run will be starting at 8am. We will have start times for each leg, so that if one leg takes longer than expected, the next runners will just start, to save people waiting around. The start/finishes are all cafes, allowing those finishing to have a coffee and refreshments post-run. 
We are using this as an opportunity to help support Brian Dunbar's collection for Ninewells Wards 10&32. We are suggesting a £2 minimum donation, which will be collected on the day and passed on to Brian.
Each leg will follow in separate posts, please indicate which leg you wish to do. This is open to all runners not just DRR members so feel free to share.

 

Leg 1 - 8am Riverside
Leg 2 - 9.40 Piperdam
Leg 3 - 10.25am Tayside Forestry
Leg 4 - 11.25am Speckled Hen
Leg 5 - 12.15 Sainsburys front door

Templeton 10 Race Results 2015

Many thanks to everyone who helped make Templeton 10 2015 another success. It couldn't have happened without the great efforts of 30+ members of the club and the committee, and you all did the club proud.

It was a beautiful Autumn morning, bright and clear, perfect for enjoying the views from the hills, and getting a fast time. We had a some fast competition, with the race won comfortably by Derek Rae from Anster Haddies, and Sheena Logan from Fife AC.

Team prizes went to Dundee Hawks for the men and Dundee Roadrunners for the women.

We had a huge interest in the race this year, and we were really pleased to have a sell out event. We're sorry to those who didn't manage to get in this year, but we hope all those who did really enjoyed their race. We will be looking into increasing numbers next year, to allow more of you to run.
