Whisky runners don’t go dry

A turnout of 61 runners and walkers, along with three dogs, braved the horrible wet and windy conditions on New Year’s morning in the annual Muckle Toon whisky run.

The bottle of whisky for the fastest finisher went to Rory Longmore from Beattock, who clocked 56 minutes and nine seconds.

Kevin Plummer of Wamphray was second in 58.01 and Gordon Vivers (Moffat) was third on the hour mark, with local man Lawrence Friell in fourth.

The run was once again organised by Charlie Graham, who thanked Alison Tinker and her husband, Mike, for their assistance. All proceeds will go to Langholm Day Centre.
