Ian Munro's Summary from Borders XC Round 2 - Dunbar

Another chapter of the 2017 borders cross country series ticked past today. In fabulous cold winter sunshine Dunbar hosted the 2nd race of the season on the beautiful white sands at Dunbar. Run on sands and the grassed over dunes this is virtually a weather proof course. The only extra challenge today was the head wind on the return leg of the 1 lap course. 220 cold, sun-tanned heros started a course made for sustained pace - unlike Lauder, there is plenty of room on the course to pass folks. The senior race was again dominated by Eion Lennon of Carnethy - but here only 8s in front of Tom Martin of the HBT. Darin Dougal was the 1st home for the Moorfoots. The junior race was equally well supported with 112 under 16's running. A very similar set of runners brought the field home, again dominated by a 16 year old youth, chased home by a 15 year old.
