ANNAN RUGBY - THE LONGEST TRY
18TH JUNE 2016

WELL DONE TO ALL WHO TOOK PART

Report by: Gary ‘Taggart’ Coupland

On Saturday 18th June, Annan Rugby organised a ' longest try' sponsored event to raise funds for the club.

At 4am the day started off at the home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh where with the kind permission of the SRU, Club Captain Craig McCann, kicked the ball off to start the run, which encompassed men's and women's senior players, carrying the ball in a relay format from Murrayfield back to the home of Annan Rugby at Violetbank Annan.

The runners were joined by Rachael Law Scotland U20 and Sarah Law, Scotland International player, who ran with the Ladies Captain Linden Moffat and Ladies Vice Captain Caroline Aitken through the Penicuik stretch of the route home.

At Moffat, our old friends from Moffat Rugby Club provided some much needed refreshments, before the final push via Lockerbie and Ecclefechan, back to Annan, where all the senior runners joined up to run the last leg from Scott street, via the High Street up to Violetbank some 12 and a bit hours later.

Whilst the senior runners were heading home and prior to their arrival at Violetbank, the club youth section were involved in running half mile laps around the circumference of the pitches and training area, prior to both groups meeting up to run down the first XV pitch for P7 Tiger Callum Kirk to score the try in dramatic fashion in front of the pavilion and the large crowd who had assembled to welcome all the runners home.

Some interesting facts of the day:
Total distance run - Seniors - 86.7 miles.
Total distance run - Juniors - 290 miles.
Fastest mile - Andrew Jancey - 5 mins 20 secs.
Quickest grouping - Craig McCann, Calum Bell, David Wylie and Josh Whiteside - 8 miles in 56 minutes.

The Club would like to thank all those players and members who put all the miles in from both the senior and junior sections of the club and all those who sponsored their efforts.

Thanks also to those who drove the buses and shuttled the players to and from the changeover points, Scottish Rugby, Moffat RFC for their hospitality and donation and all those who organised and managed the youth run and provided refreshments from the barbecue and Grubber.

Special mention must go to the Clubs honorary President Mr Alan ' Irn bru' Robertson, who attended at Murrayfield at 4am and then travelled all the way back to Annan with the runners to photograph and record the event as they progressed through the countryside.
