Andy Fallas and Iain Whiteside were 2nd and 3rd, and Andy won the 1st to the top of Morven prize. Paul Faulkner won the V40 in 7th place and Stewart Whitlie the V50 (with a new course record) in 8th place. Carnethy won the men’s team prize with Andy, Iain and Paul. Helen Bonsor took 3 place sen female.
Idle inspection of the V40 trophy revealed the only missing year and runner to be Stewart, who won it in 2007. A strange omission!
The course is an initially steepish ascent through heather then more open to the summit cairn. A rougher variation on the way down through boggy and heathery terrain with a short section of landrover track. Nice and cool and still today with great views. Pity I couldn’t complete the sweep of V trophies with the 60. Well signed and marshalled and with a great feed afterwards. A Carnethy and SHR championship race. 8.5k and 640 metres. Results here
