||Not quite social 7 Hills Recce: 4.5 hills and 1 near miss
After a fragmented start with only some takers for the Seven Hills Recce, Gordon led a group of us to Arthur’s Seat. Unable to hold the pace I split from the group on the ascent before collecting a few wayward runners on the descent. Having lost the faster runners two of us proceeded to plod round to Corstorphine Hill and beyond.
There had been people asking to do a 7 Hills Recce for weeks so on spur of the moment last night at KB we decided to go for it.
There were 11 in group that started from the Archway on Observatory Road and plan was to see how far we could go before returning to KB. With many stops to regroup it took about an hour to get to Carlton Hill via Arthur’s Seat. From then on we started to cast of members that soon we were down to 8 and then by Craiglockhart it was 6. It was then that we found only 2 of the group were actually doing the race next month. We decided to miss out Braids but 4 of us finished back at the Archway in 2.25 and went back to KB in the drizzle for a well-deserved pint only to find it was SHUT!
