From the Newcastle Journal, Monday 21st November 2005.

Border's Michael Scott, now in the veteran ranks, gained victory in the 54th running of the ever popular Wm Coulthard & Co Ltd sponsored Brampton to Carlisle 10M Road Race. Hayley Haining of Kilbarchan repeated her 2004 victory finishing in a magnificent 11th position in the 600-strong field.

In the cold but bright conditions, Scott, also successful in 2001, was content to stay in the leading group of 6 runners for the first 5M (25:50). The group was down to four at 7M before Alisdair Tatham of Quakers made the first real break, a mile later. Scott was the only one to cover the move, and made his bid for victory at the 9M point (47:12). The winning margin was 6 secs over Tatham, who clocked a personal best time.

Stewart Gregory from Nottingham took third ahead of Cumbria based Trafford athlete, Chris Doyle, who looked the likely winner at halfway. David Swinburne of Morpeth recovered from a severe stitch at 3M, to take 5th ahead of another of the early leaders, Steve Potts of Sunderland. Scott also led the host club to a third successive team title.

With tricky underfoot conditions in the middle part of the course, due to a heavy overnight frost which had not completely cleared, the leading times were slightly down on previous years. This did not deter Haining though, whose winning time placed her in 4th place on this year's UK rankings, and was nearly 2mins quicker than last year. Though a long way adrift of the winner, Holly May of Bath clocked another fast time in 2nd position, while nearly another 5mins behind in third place was the leading veteran, Alison Raw of Darlington. Morpeth led by 4th placed Jane Mooney easily won the team title.

Yeah, it's a fast course. My two fastest 10 mile times were recorded on it in the early 90's. Unfortunately, as it's a point-to-point race, and is officially downhill, the times I did are somewhat devalued
