Wednesday 17th July gave us a trip to Linwood sports centre for the Dunren open graded. Just before the warm up for the sprinter, the heavens opened and by the time the first 100m race was about to start the track was like a pond and the sprinters were considering water wings instead of running spikes. The news came through that due to health ans safety all 100m and 200m races were to be cancelled, however the hardy middle distance races were to go ahead. David L, Elle H and John L were up for the 800m race despite being soaked through. David run 2mins 50secs, Elle 2min 57secs and wee John 3mins 4 secs (a new PB by 26secs). David also entered the shot putt competition and achieved a PB throwing 7m 24cm so despite the rain a good night was had by the middle distance squad while the wet sprinters went home without a race.
