Saved Dundee Half Marathon Success

After just three years the resurrected Dundee Half Marathon was cancelled when the sponsors pulled out after only attracting 380 entries. However new sponsors were found and did a remarkable job of staging the event on Sunday June 21, especially considering the timescales they had to work with.

After just three years the resurrected Dundee Half Marathon was cancelled when the sponsors pulled out after only attracting 380 entries. However new sponsors were found and did a remarkable job of staging the event on Sunday June 21, especially considering the timescales they had to work with.

On a warm sunny day some 218 runners completed the mainly downhill course, with a few winding paths and a number of short but steep climbs for runners to contend with. An unusually nice touch was the sight of the Race Director shaking everyone’s hand as they completed their 13.1 miles.

The race was won by Anstruther’s David Burgess in 1:17:58. Local runner Kelly-Anne Speight won the women’s race in 1:26:54. The last runner finished in just over three hours.
