McDonald Club Handicap

McDonald Club Handicap

Open to Men, Women and over 15’s

Saturday 28 th January , 1030hrs  registration and prize giving in Swanston Golf Club where coffee and cola will be served.. or something stronger at 1130 hrs.
It is 5k over two laps on a clear trail around Swanston/Lothian burn.. just south of bypass. If you are not running , a few recorders/stewards are needed to help me out.

Tell me you 5k time or guess . Slowest away first and fastest proportionate time later.
Idea is we all have equal chance and first EAC member back can keep historic McDonald Trophy for a year.

 Good race practice before the Nationals.

    Quick note for the record

    Winner Brian howie in 23.20 over a tough XC 5k at Swanston. Former ESH Brian used to run 10k road in 33.20 for the southern . A worthy winner now that he is over 60 and still supports the club. Previous winners took catergory honours, namely,
    Andy Laird sen man in 22.40 and senior woman was vicky Lomax/Billie in 22.00/ Vet woman was ever youthful Karen Dobbie in 22.59

    ta to ken mortimer for organising and male captain martin ferguson along with several others for help.
