The new Training and Race page has a calendar which includes some interval sessions penciled in for the next few weeks. You are welcome to give them a try. If you are planning a training run or are looking for a training partner, just email me and I'll add it to the calendar.

11th Summer Handicap Race took place on 15 September. See Results page.

Some good PBs at Buckie 10k. Dru came within 3 seconds of beating 40 minutes with Alex Duthie close behind. And a second District Championship medal of the season (10k and Half Marathon) for Carol Massie who has consistently improved with every race. Full results on Results page.

Well done to Mark Caldwell again, who completed the Ayr Way 41mls on Saturday 18th September. Finished 10th in 6h 09m having taken a wrong turn at 35 miles. So much for Army training! This confirmed Mark as 12th overall in the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series (SUMS) and 3rd in his category for 2010. SUM achievement! Mark reckons that several more Broch runners could do well in the series if they wish to put in the training.

Well done to everyone who carried Barry the Baton between New Aberdour and St Fergus.
