Sunday was a superb day in the Pentlands for a race- cold and sunny with blue skies.
The route, starting at Threipmuir Reservoir, was mainly low level with a few climbs. We passed Loganlea, Glencorse, Bonaly, Torduff, Clubbiedean and Harlaw Reservoirs on mixed terrain.
Beautiful views, great support from the marshals and a good atmosphere all round. A highlight was the hot soup on an open fire and a fine spread of baking at the end, which was I was certainly ready for!
At least four Carnethys raced:
James Britton 1h 21m 57s (1st overall)
Rachel Newstead 1h 38m 50s (1st lady)
Abigail Robertson 1h 45m 21s (2nd lady)
Nick Goldfinch 1h 53m 40s
