On Sunday 21st June members of ADAC ran the Annandale way - a path covering some 44 miles from norh of Moffat to Newbie. This was an epic adventure for our runners who rose to the challenge and completed the route in just over 9 hours.
Johnny Minto, Liz Dawson and Gordon Vivers started the relay off around 7am near the Beef tub north or Moffat and from there a succession of runners took over passing through both Lochmaben and Lockerbie on the way south. The path splits into two but ADAC athletes had both routes covered with groups tackling both the Joe Graham monument and the slighlty less hilly route via the Lockerbie.
Back up and first aid was provided by Richard Smith en route on his bike. This was a great reassurance and kept the change overs really smooth.
This was a fabulous day of team unity and spirit and proved again just how ADAC is devleloping as a club.
Many thanks to Johnny for his in depth knowledge and advice in the planning of this event.
Later in the year some of our athletes are planning to run the whole distance and will need a support crew along the way. Details will follow.
Well done everyone !
