Club sponsor Malcolm Gatenby blasted his way to a PB in the Hong Kong Half Marathon on Sunday. Malcolm came home in 1-45-58 and promptly threw down the gauntlet for the Dubai half on Friday 7th December. Remember the Dubai 1/2 is the first race in the club championship. The winner will be the best aggregate time for the DCS 1/2, DRR 10K & MM 10 Miles age and sex adjusted to a 30 year old male to ensure that all start with a level playing field. Some of you may remember Gillian Caska from when she ran here last year, apparently she was very excited to see Malcolm.......?

Milers were in evidence at the Abu dhabi Striders Half Marathon on Friday even if many of the them were running in DCS kit (splitters!). Leading us home was the chairlady resplendent in stylish non milers top. Special mention goes to Bolly (Amelia) who in true Milers style managed to be late for the start, jumped in at the 2K mark and blistered her way through the field enroute to a PB over the newly recognised distance of 19.1K.

Miler finishers were

Anne Scadden 01:46:32

Dave Jackson 01:47:09

Martin Scadden 01:53:08

Dave Forsythe 01:59:36

Elaine Forsythe 02:15:44

Spotted running for some other club but Milers at heart were

Ian Gordon 01:35:36

Tony McGuire 01:35:53

Colin Foreman 01:46:24

Seven Milers went to Istanbul and seven returned happy with their performances despite managing to a) travel on two different airlines b) stay in three different hotels c) watch their chairman miss a PB for a Mars bar. Performances of the day must go to Colin Foreman whom smashed his PB by 45 minutes to finish in 3-55-21 and Malcolm Gatenby finishing his first ever marathon in 4-11-51. Others to finish were Chris McCann in a superb 3-05-24, Tony McGuire in a PB of 3-46-40, Dave Jackson in 03-49-22, Martin MARS Scadden in 4-18-30 and Gary Wells in the 15K in 1-12. Once the running was out of the way the beer drinking began! After the success of this inaugural Milers weekend we are now considering our options for both Spring & Autumn 2008... Watch this space. Quote of the weekend FANTASTIC.
