Burning Up the Buckland Burn

On another lovely Saturday morning, runners descended upon Kirkcudbright for the annual running of the Buckland Burn-Up 5 mile road race. A tough wee race that has a hill that keeps on giving before a brilliant downhill finish

It was a very good turn out for QRC, and a good number of runners in the field. With James Taylor coming in 3rd overall with less the top 3 finishing within a minute. Marie Marshall a week removed from completing the WHW (who was taking it easy) finishing 11th overall and 1st VF40 and Liz Dawson pulled in the accolade of 1st VF60.

Hmm think Hoka’s are a popular choice in QRC

Fantastic running from everyone who took part with the bulk of the QRC runners finishing within 42 minutes. A fantastically well run wee event definitely one to look out for next year.

Special mention goes out to Conrad & Theo Black who took part in the Junior Burn-Up, great wee introduction to racing for the next generation of runners.
