Donkey Brae 7 Mile Race 2011

A great turn-out of ERNs and friends took part in this year’s Donkey Brae race or turned out to support (thanks to Nicola, Balfour, Isabel, Roger, Susan, Karen, Laurence, Jacob, Orla, Grace and Dara). This is also an ERN Summer Series Run and one of our Race-of-the-Quarter event with a number of first timers taking part. Congratulations to those that set a PB but especially of note is ‘tache Gordon’s fabulous PB and 2nd in category award and to Trudi Robertson who was 3rd in category (unfortunately no prize but only seconds between the first 3 in category!).

The race itself is a scenic, humply, run out through Aberdour to Dalgety Bay and back; down to the shore and fields, out and back on a variety of cycle-tracks, park roads and streets before the climb up the infamous Donkey-Brae (not as bad as you think) to finish at the festival/farmers market and marquee where a good crowd welcomed all home. The weather was braw (cloudy but warm) and allowed everyone to have a good race and subsequently to retire to the nearby Silver Sands Beach area for a lovely BBQ. As always, many thanks to all at Aberdour Festival. We’ll be back next year.
