Captain’s Log

Carlisle Half 2019

Captains Log 3rd November 2019

Its been a while and so much has happened. Beginning of September saw the club championship at Carlisle Half Marathon, with a fantastic attendance by club members. Well done Willie Martin and Carol Elliott 2019 Club Champions.

Then on a great days running at the Great Scottish Run, where Jog Scotland member Jacqui McLaren completed the 10k, and Chris and Nicky Wood, Frank Stewart, Captain Dougie Kerr and Steve Head did the dafty double – completing the 10k and then heading back to the start in time for the Half Marathon. A fantastic day out for the club.

There have been continued runs in both grand prixs, Manor Water Hill race, DH Runners River 10k and Tinto Hill Race.

Several ultras, starting with Andy Beattie completing the UTMB, Carolyn Davies at Punk Panther Reservoir Dogs, Alan Cameron at Jedburgh Three Peaks Ultra, and well done to newbie ultra runners Nicky Wood and Dougie Kerr at Glen Ogle 33, ably assisted by Keith Ainslie and Gillian McCaa.

It is also great to see regular turnouts both running and volunteering at Crichton Parkrun for a wide variety of members. Fantastic to see Gerry Hughes back out and taking on the challenge 23 weeks after a hip replacement.

I hope as many members as possible can attend the AGM on 11th November at the Frothy Bike Company on the Whitesands, Dumfries at 7.30pm. As part of the club committee we want to give all members the best experience and meet your running requirements. Please come and let us know what you want.
