Healthy entry for this year’s Doctors’ Run: Ryan smashes it with a well-paced run and youngsters have fun in the sun


Doctors’ Run

RYAN Milligan scorched round the eight-mile Doctors’ Run course last Sunday and came home in 48.47.
His blistering pace meant runner-up Dean Winter crossed the line in 53.48 followed by Alex Jarzyna 55.44.
Alex and his team-mates Martin Thomlinson and Charles Paisley, as the Muckle Toon Sloggers, won the team competition.
In the women’s race Anna Cuthbert came second in 63.56 and also won the local female prize.
Locals Colin Cox won the medical male and Liz Forsyth the medical female. Pauline Irving, who recently celebrated her 50th birthday took the F50 prize in 73.06.
Fifty-five runners set off from the cricket club ground last Sunday but the junior race attracted fewer entries and nine children lined up at the Lodge Gates.
They were split into two age groups and the winner of the male 12 to 16 race was Conan Harper. Iona Jamieson won the girls’ race.
In the eight to 11 age group Glen Jamieson won the boys’ race and Mia Harvey the girls’ race.
Before the trophies were presented by Alan Miller of Yarns to Yearn For, Sharon Irving thanked everyone for supporting the Run, the fifth one which the Muckle Toon Joggers had organised.
She thanked Kirsty Ash for organising the event and the 40 marshalls who helped to get everyone round the courses safely. She thanked Buccleuch Estates for giving access to its land and all the bakers who provided the traybakes.
