New record for Crichton in Berwick Curfew Run

LAST Wednesday saw the annual Curfew Run take place in Berwick. With another great turn out of 116 runners on the night, this meant that for the third consecutive year there was an entry of over 110, proving that the Curfew Run is one of the town's premier sporting events.

With the aim of all the runners to complete the course in less than 13 minutes (the time it takes for the Curfew Bell to toll) 91 out of 116 runners did so.

However, it was one staggering performance that this event will be remembered for.

With weather conditions which didn't favour fast times no one was expecting to see the course record of 6.33 broken, but that didn't stop Dunbar's Andrew Crichton smashing the course record, taking a staggering 11 seconds off the previous best.

Crichton won the senior race in 6 minutes and 22 seconds. Berwick High School Student Ciaran Turton won the male under 16 category in a time of 7.33. In the female event Alison Brown won the under 16 category with a time of 8.29 and in the female senior category Jane Holmes won in a time of 9.00.

Congratulation must go to all runners who won the respective age groups. All competitors should be thanked for making the event such a big hit and every runner was greeted with a standing ovation from the crowd watching as they crossed the line.

A big thank you must go to the team of organisers. Berwick Harriers yet again provided excellent service on the night, with time keeping, marshals and registration.

The event was organised by Active Berwick with help coming from North Country Leisure. On the night Rapid Response provided the first aid cover for the event. Also a thank you to the Berwick Advertiser who helped out with promotion.
