Event No.1 Tour de Moffat 5.7miles. A hilly mainly off road course.
Weather : Dry ,Mild after heavy rain.
After 24 hours of heavy rain the previous day the first race of the Winter league's opening race "Tour de Moffat" gave runners a very tricky and WET run over the hills around Moffat. 14 runners took on the challenge and all enjoyed the climbing,descending and..........wading through the streams which had become rivers.
First home for the club was Joe Boardman who was pushed all the way by young Jack Johnstone and Gordon Vivers. First lady home was Marie Marshall despite going the wrong way and adding another half mile to the course. She was closely followed home by Louise Hopper and Liz Dawson.
Well done all ! Results are below.
Sat 24th November
Brownmoor forest 5,2miles
The weather was very kind considering the time of year and good unerfoot conditions made for some good times despite the extra hazard of some sheep being moved form one field to another (I'll have to add that as a hazard next time).
Those who have done this course before knew about the first "hill" which goes on for what seems like forever and one which deserves respect. It was very important to take this steady especially on the first lap. Overall the climb was over 700ft which almost takes this race into the realms of a hill race.
First lady home was Marie Marshall and first gent home was Joe Boardman.
Results are below. Well done everyone !

Event No. 3 Workington cross Country
Conditions were very near perfect for a testing Cross country event at Workington. Only two Seniors managed the trip down but they both enjoyed the course and faired well against tough opposition. Results are below.
Event No.4 Keswick Cross Country December 15th
The wintry weather did not put off 5 hardy souls who travelled down to Keswick for the Cumbria League Cross Country event. The temperature and wind chill was affecting everyone but despite this the famous 5 put on a decent performance on a perfect cross country course which tested everyone.
Results are below.
Event No.5 Black Esk Reservoir run.
Sunday Jan 6th 1030. Weather -mild but misty and damp conditions.
A fabulous turn out of over 30 runners travelled up to the Black Esk reservoir on Sunday for the 7.75m (approx) race around the reservoir in a loop. ADAC members were joined by a fair number of guests all of whom enjoyed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. First home on the day was Jack ("just taking it steady today") Johnstone in a good time of 52:31m whilst the first lady home was Rosie Allen in a splendid time of 56:42.

Event No.8 "Touch the heart stone" Sunday 3rd Feb
A fabulous turn out of runners from not only ADAC but Dalbeattie and Dumfries clubs tackled the testing run up to the heart stone from the old Dalbeattie primary school. Early morning rain on a snowy trail made conditions quite slippery but local runner Andrew Webster made light work of the route finishing in 32.12. Donna Burnett was the first lady home in 36.15. First home for the club was Jack Johnstone and first lady was Marie Marshall. All runners enjoyed a nice warm cuppa afterwards and despite the rain said they really enjoyed the run. Many thanks to all who helped make this another successful ADAC race.

EVENT No.9 ADAC RIVER RACES
EVENT No.10 CROOKED ROAD RACE
Conditions were dry and mild although a strengthening wind made the going tougher the longer the race went on. There were some absences today but those that managed to get up and down enjoyed the challenge. First home on the day was Joe Boardman who was closely followed by first lady home Marie Marshall. Afterwards we had a special big birthday surprise for Heather.
|KATRINA SMITH (GUEST)||43:04||-|
EVENT No.11 BURNSWARK HILL RACE
The final race of the season was a reminder that we are still in Winter. Blizzard like conditions greeted runners who turned up for the event with the hill itself covered in about 2 inches of snow. Times were not reallyimportant today but guest (and hopefully an ADAC member soon) James Taylor posted an excellent time of 41:24 whilst Marie Marshall did likewise with her time of 46:27 although she did admit to one or two ski jumps on the way down the hill. Well done to all who ventured out today.
Here are the results:
|JAMES TAYLOR (Guest)||41:24||-|
|JOHN MURPHY (shorter route)||56:01||51.18|
