Glen Clova Half Marathon

 

 

Glen Clova Half Marathon, the final race in our 2017 Grand Prix took place in November.  We had a great turn out of 37 runners who braved the cold to run this beautiful but challenging course with constant ups and downs from start to finish.  The last few miles into a bitter headwind were particularly tough.  Despite that, the team's performance was fantastic with a number of PBs and Standards achieved.  There was also a number of half marathon debutants who did absolutely brilliantly and prizes for both male and female teams.

Well done all!   A great end to this year's Grand Prix!

David Rodley's 1000 Day Running Streak

A huge congratulations to club member David Rodley who has just celebtrated his 1000th consecutive daily run! David decided to run every day for a year in 2015 and is still carrying on the challenge, more than 6000 miles later. The club marked the occassion with a pizza and a quiz night at the Westport Bar.  It's not just a matter of racking up the miles though:   David's running is going from strength to strength.  He has just finished his fourth Loch Ness Marathon, placing second in his category in an incredible time of 3:13.  Next challenge?  Apart from continuing with his running streak, David is running his first London Marathon next year.

Club 5 Mile Race 2017

 

 

The second annual DRR 5 mile race took place in Broughty Ferry on Tuesday 19 September.   Thanks to everyone who turned up to make this race such a success!  We had 60 running the fast, flat, out and back route on a gorgeous evening.  Lots of PBs were made and standards achieved.  

Congratulations to Robbie Dunlop and Michelle Mackay who were first home with brilliant times of 29:05 and 30:08 respectively.  For Robbie, that was over 2 minutes fasters that last year's race - all the more impressive given the fact that he had run the 40 River Ayr Way Ultra Marathon at the weekend! 

For this year's race, we have introduced an annual trophy to recognise the runner with the most improved times year on year.  Congratulations to John Tierney who shaved a huge 10% (4 minutes) off last year's time!     It wasn't just John and Robbie who got faster, though:  of the 21 runners who competed in both races, 15 were quicker.  Well done to you all. 

Results from both 5 mile races can be found here
