Dalkeith Country Park Night 10k Race Weds 13th Feb

Colin, Mike and local runner Craig Rendle (and newly crowned Lothian and Borders Police XC champion) headed to Dalkeith Country Park on Wednesday night for a 10k night race. We had some good results with Mike in a podium position until late in the race when he took a wrong turn in the dark, but managed to recover for 5th place. Colin and Craig ran shoulder to shoulder for most of the race until Craig put in a burst with 500m to go and opened up a 5 sec gap, with Craig finishing 6th and Colin 7th.
It was wet, wild and muddy evening and about 90% of the course was on trails. Results available here:

A series was announced dates stretching over the summer with 10k and 20k-ish offroad trail races (mainly flat) with venues such as Dalkeith, John Muir Trail near Dunbar and the Pentlands as well as a 55k ultra in the Lammermuirs:
