I spied Darin Dougal was in action at the Dunbar Doon Hill 10 mile race last Saturday and recorded a very creditable 11th place and 3rd M40 in what was a field with some real quality - GB and Scottish Senior International hill runners Murray Strain and Andy Fallas were 2nd and 4th respectively with the winner Eoin Lennon, a sponsored ultra runner from Carnethy over 4 mins clear of second! Full results here Well done Darin.
This is how the organisers Dunbar Running Club explain the race:
The EDF Energy Dunbar
10 Mile Race (a.k.a. the Doon Hill Race) is held partly on unclassified
roads, and mainly on farm roads, trails and paths.
a flat 2 miles out of town, there is a steady climb up to the highest
point on the course at around 5 and a half miles. Enjoy some terrific
views out over East Lothian and to sea, and then make your way back down
again and onto the finish.
