THE annual Anster Haddies’ East Neuk 10K took place on Sunday and attracted over 300 runners.

The day was warm and sunny with a light breeze but probably just a little too warm for a course record.

First place went to Alistair Hay of Central Running Club, who finished just outside the course record time in 33:52.

Second male was Tommy Lawrence and the Haddies’ own Zach Delany was third in 34:54.

Claire Couper was first female in 39:02.

The fastest team prize went to Fife AC’s Steve Clark, Tony Martin and Brian Cruikshank.

Brian also found time to sort out collating the race results along with his wife. Dell Rae was second Haddie home in 38:44 and Ewan Lumsden was third Haddie in 39:01.

Thanks have been extended, right, to race sponsors Anstruther Fish Bar, Blackadders and Sweatshop. There were numerous spot prizes, as well as awards for the top runners. See more in ‘Sports Classified’ on page 41.
