Pitreavie Endurance Section runners had a good turnout at one of the first races of the season since the end of the second COVID lockdown in Scotland.  12 Pitreavie memberstook part across two races – the Edinburgh 20 (mile) race, and the Dalmeny Half Marathon.  The event, put on by Blast Running and licensed by Scottish Athletics, was subject to full COVID-19 risk assessment and Scottish Athletics guidelines, giving runners the confidence to participate and fully enjoy the race.  


Runners started in well organised waves from Cramond over a tough and undulating course into the Dalmeny Estate, where the route followed the coastline to South Queensferry.  The 20 mile course then traversed the Forth Road Bridge, returning to join the Half Marathon runners, with both routes finishing in the beautiful Dalmeny Estate.  The excellent race was throughly enjoyed by Pitreavie members.


Iain Howatt (V50M) was the first Pitreavie runner home in the 20 mile race, placing 9th with 2 hrs 28 mins and 18 secs, only 15 mins behind winner Ross Miller (V40M) from Harmeny AC.  Senior Man David Henderson was first Pitreavie man in the Half Marathon, finishing in 1 hr 33 mins 37 secs, with Ben Fraser (SM) next in for Pitreavie in 1 hr 39 mins 17 secs.  The winner,  David McNamara (unaffiliated), completed the race in 1 hr 19 mins 24 secs.


Once again putting the word endurance into ‘Endurance Section’, Lukasz Cwiklewski ran an astonishing 100k up and down Kirkcaldy Promenade.  Starting his personal challenge at 5.00am on a particularly dreich May day, Lukasz finished in 9 hrs 25 mins, well under his target time of 10 hours, and improving on his previous PB by a fantastic 1 hr 5 mins.
