Senior Cross Country Championships are getting hot

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.

2018 Hill Racing Championship Series

There are some changes to the format of this year’s hill racing championship series which were discussed and approved at the last committee meeting. All the changes are designed to encourage wider participation and to simplify the format. The principles are:

  1. Publish the races earlier to try to allow other series organisers to plan
  2. Keep the races as local as possible
  3. Keep to shorter distance races where possible
  4. Qualification is 5 races (categories are not considered)
  5. Points scoring is the same as previous years
  6. Age categories remain the same

This year’s races will include two “club” races in the Sidlaws after positive feedback from last year’s racers. These races are free to enter and are open to any other club or unattached athlete. They are not on the SHR Calendar and are not SA licensed events (at present)

Races:

17/03/2018  Sidlaw Sunset Chase (Winter)

24/03/2018  Birnam Hill Classic

28/04/2018  Norman Law Hill Race

17/05/2018  Kinnoull Hill Race

26/05/2018  Glas Tulaichean Uphill

15/06/2018  White Tops Hill Race

TBC  Largo Law

12/08/2018  Lomonds of Fife Hill Race

12/09/2018  Sidlaw Sunset Chase (Summer)

The Largo Law hill race is included in the series, but at present the date has not been confirmed. Also Kinnoull Hill Race is on the calendar as 17th May but still to be confirmed

Billy Gibson is organising this year’s White Tops Race and Steve Matthews is organising  Glas Tulaichean. I hope that the club will support them as much as possible to ensure the continued success of these races

 

Presentation Night

The clubs annual presentation evening will be on Saturday 18th November 2017 at Ardler Community Centre from 6-11pm.

Award ceremony from 6-8pm followed by buffet and disco until 11pm.

Tickets £2 per person, available from committee members on training nights.

Hope to see lots of you there for a fun, social evening 😀

Waiting List Suspension (Juniors)

Waiting List Suspension (Juniors 9-18 years)

Due to the upcoming displacement of the club for the redevelopment of Caird Park the committee has taken the difficult decision to suspend our waiting list to new junior members for a few months to allow current members / groups and coaches to settle into new training venues. This is to ensure continued safety for all.

As of today and until the end of January 2018 no further junior members will be added to the waiting list.

If you or your child is interested in joining the club / athletics please contact Debbie Letham, Membership Secretary on DHHMembership@hotmail.com who will be able to advise when the list will be open again

Hawks excel in the Highlands

There were some fantastic performances at yesterday’s River Ness 10k.  Overall winner was Kris Jones (running for Swansea) who completed the course in 29:51 which was the 3rd fastest time in the events history.  First home in a Hawks vest was James Donald (33:29) followed closely by Mike Herron (33:40) and Johnny McBain (34:52).  Completing the Hawk’s lineup were Lee Strachan, Kenny Liddell, Ryan Donald (all sub 38), Angus Donald and Joyce Donald.  This was the penultimate race in the 2017 series with most of the categories now decided.  Final race is the DRR hosted Templeton 10 in November.

Senior Road Championship

Six Hawks travelled to Glenrothes to tackle the Stuart Duncan memorial 5KM race.  This was a fast out and back course on traffic free cycle paths with a slight uphill first half followed by the return downhill finish.  First Hawk(and first overall) was Mike Herron in a PB time of 16:36.  Robert Sellars of PH racing was next home followed closely by Billy Gibson(16:44), Johnny McBain(16:59), Lee Strachan(17:03) and Andrew Leech(17:41) to complete the top six places.

Nicola Tully finished in a time of 23:00 to claim 7th place in the female race and complete the required six counters for the championship.  Nicola has built an unassailable lead in the veteran category so will need to find some space on her mantelpiece for some silverware come prize giving.
