…and comes away with an unfeasibly large haggis – prize winning itself, and other goodies. I don’t know where the speedy V60s went today, but their loss was my gain, and I was quite surprised by my win in the category. The race is organised by Wonder Woman, who’s secret identity I can reveal is Sheila Cochrane, who got over 30 marshals onto the hill, negotiated with farmers, persuaded Sainsbury’s and many other sponsors to put up prizes, arranged local physios Physioplus to give some free therapy, and organised the wonderful haggis, neaps and tatties for possibly the best and healthiest post race food there is.
The race is to raise funds for the local mountain rescue team.
A good turnout of Carnethies, and some 170 ran on a wet course of just over 13 miles, but with improving weather, and some lovely views.The going was quite a bit faster than the first running of the race last year in firm snow. Results.
