Buckland Burn Up 22nd June
Eight ADAC members travelled across to Kirkcudbright for the Buckland Burn up race on Saturday 22nd. The weather was good for running. Not too warm and a nice breeze off the sea. This very scenic race follows the coast road for the first 2 miles then heads inland to mile 4 where runners are greeted by a "small" incline. This is such a good test of strength but runners are rewarded by a downhill last mile or so back into the town. Some good individual performances not least by Marie Marshall who took the ladies Female shield home. It was good to see newer members taking part in ADAC colours for the first time. Well done everyone ! Results are below :
