‘Cheap and Cheerful’ is how the organiser described this 4.5 mile sprint up a very modest hill. I was very cheerful (and I’m very cheap) to win a bottle of wine as 2nd V60; the fine array of cake and the wide spread of prizes adding to the cheer. I don’t know of any other race that has 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in all the categories.
Only 3 Carnethys – the others being Garry MacInnes who was 2nd V50; and Ali Black, position unknown as yet. Scion of the Monday Arthur’s Seat Handicap Neil McLure nabbed a bottle too, for 3rd place in a category I can’t remember. But he’s not a Carnethy so never mind.
A very popular race so I did at least have some competition. A shame not to see some Carnethy juniors there. Results here at some point.
