Fancy A DRAM?

DRAM runners

A thousand competitors will be greeted by temperatures of 21C at the Dundee Running Adventure Marathon (DRAM) and Half DRAM tomorrow (21 July). And organiser, Nicholas Kydd has warned participants to stay well hydrated.

He said: "That will be warm for a half-marathon and even more so for the marathon. Runners should make sure that they are drinking plenty of fluids."

Nicholas also spoke about what makes the DRAM special: "DRAM is a different marathon to the norm - it takes place on trails, paths and pavements; roads are not closed. It is a real adventure marathon. Not an event you'd take part in to break any records, but you will get a lot of satisfaction from taking part."

The picturesque marathon is a one-lap anti-clockwise route that uses the full green circular which surrounds Dundee. It starts and finishes at Camperdown Park, with the final section taking runners along the waterfront. Both runs are a mix of trail, path and pavement.There are parking and toilet facilities at the park and there will be eight water stations. In keeping with the event's name, the fastest man and woman will receive a bottle of whisky each as a prize.
