Yesterday’s final Highland Boundaries Series race was enshrouded in mist and skulduggery yesterday, seeing a large portion of the field gallop past a tampered junction marker in the first couple of miles. The final times came out a bit wonky with some runners having completed the correct course, some having missed a check-point but crashing on regardless (they were given a 10 minute “penalty” if they realised/admitted their mistake), and some making the enthusiasm-sapping trek back up the hill to the Rocking Stone. I personally added a mile and a half or so onto the official 12 miles. Spot the difference: my route here vs Official route here. Blog here
I was distracted by Adrian’s excellent soup, cake and tea, but I think the headline results were:
First Man: Ewan (??) in 1:25ish
Second Man: Callum Gilhooley
First Lady: Stephanie Provan
Second Lady: Hedwig Ponjee
Thanks to Adrian for his serene race organisation in the face of minimal marshal availability and for having everyone round to his gaff for refreshments!Full results to follow.
