Website back up and running 🙂
Regrettably, I have to cancel tomorrow’s Sidlaw Sunset Chase race. Full details are on the Facebook page, but current conditions and forecasts mean it it is likely to be dangerous on the hills tomorrow
The senior road championship tables this year will appear slightly differently. All age group athletes will be included in the club championship table no matter age category. Points will also be awarded in age category but an athlete can only win one prize. If a veteran wins the club championship then the next best runner will receive the trophy in that category. As there may be more athletes running the combined championship, scoring has been adjusted slightly and can be found on the championship page.
The first race in this year’s hill championship series takes place on Saturday 17th March at 3pm. The race is open to anyone over the age of 17 and is free to enter. I have attached race information here for anyone who is interested. I have sent these details to Scottish Hill Runners with a request for the race to be publicised on their website.
The multi-terrain championship for 2018 has now been updated. Points are scored using the WAVA age grading system so takes into account performance in relation to age. Races run over a variety of terrains and mainly shorter distances at local events.
Here are results from todays Winter XC series events in Camperdown Park.
Thank you to everyone who came along ran, helped out and supported this event, it is much appreciated. It was a great day, fabulous to see so many Hawks running and doing well in all the age group races.
Please see map below for the DHH hosted Winter XC events in Camperdown Park, tomorrow. Will also be available on DHH Facebook Forum.

After the last of the east league races at Broxburn on Saturday, there are still lots of age categories which can still be won or lost at the compulsory Masters (V40+) and or Nationals XC races next month.
This year we have seen record numbers of participation in the XC season which is great for the club and a huge shout out to the under 11 girls who won the East League series. First team victory in any age category since 2004. Well done girls!
In the U20 men, both James Donald and Callum McCormack can win depending on the results at the Nationals. Same for the senior men where the Nationals will decide whether Chris Walsh or Kenny Liddell will win. Billy Gibson win will the V40 category if he completes the Masters. Both Nigel Reynolds and Marco Placentino can win the V50 category depending on the Masters/Nationals. Dave Hanlon will win the V60 category if he completes the Masters and Pancho Hernandez has the V70 category wrapped up if he completes the Masters event.
In the ladies events, Amy Mollison looks hot favourite for the U20 category as long as she completes the Nationals to hold off I. Remers and Eilidh Reynolds. Kirsty Reynolds has the senior ladies championship in the bag if she completes the Nationals; same for Diane Placentino on the V40 category but watch our for Cat Matthews. Tracey Passway in the V50 category can win at the Masters or the Nationals.
Current standings are now on the relevant page on the website.
Here are the provisional DB teams for this year. Thanks to everyone for responding to the arm-twisting and cajoling – we really appreciate you turning out for the club. If anyone else want to run, please let me know as things always go awry on the day.
