Runners see in the Bells

IT WAS a fine, mild morning in Langholm for the 59 runners and walkers who took part in the Muckle Toon Whisky Run on New Year’s Day, although the course of more than eight miles was a bit muddy in places.

Andy Render of Annan was the winner in 58 minutes and 32 seconds, with Stewart Pool of Langholm second in 59.11 and Andrew Kennedy of Annan third in an hour dead. Kevin Graham of Langholm took fourth place in 60.15.

Organiser Charlie Graham would like to thank Alison and Mike Tinker for all their help, also race winner Andy Render for his extra contribution to the Langholm Day Centre funds.
