Moorfoots at Dunbar 10K Boundary Race

Five Moorfoots made the trip through to Dundar for the Belhaven Best Dunbar 10K Boundary Race. The weather looked a bit threatening as we arrived but almost on cue, the clouds cleared and the sun came out, but the breezy conditions remained - the two wind turbines behind the all-weather pitches at Race HQ more than earning their keep....

On a twisting and turning course, Wull Hynd led the Moorfoots home in 35'31", to take the Male Vet prize and fourth place over-all. Darin Dougal was close behind in 35'52" for fifth place, and Mike 'I don't run very well in the mornings' McGovern a bit off his usual pace at 37'10". No team prize today....Dunbar's 1st 7th 9th placing taking the honours.

Kenny Davidson held off some late challengers for a 39'54" and Chris Blackwood finished strongly to dip under the 40 minute mark with a 39'57".

A well organised and friendly event, this is certainly a recommended race - all finishers receiving a 'tinnie' of the sponsors finest ale.
