The Carnethy Winter Ultra Series completed with the Alternative John Muir Way – the 5th ‘Ultra Distance’ of the set of runs.
None were races and each route was designed to get people into running that bit further than the might on a usual day out. Routes varied from icy snow-fests finished well after dark, to sublime beaches and sunshine in secret Scotland’s Lothian beaches, stunning trails of the Tweed Valley and high spots in remote spots around Edinburgh. Generally we had great weather with bacon rolls, cafes, cakes and the odd beer and pie consumed along the way.
Between 9 and 22 people attended some or all of the runs and about 80 people participated in total.
If you did them all, you would get 165 miles in your legs in the winter months. So who did them all, and who went the farthest? Here are those who did 2 or more that I can remember, and their rough distances. If I missed you, sorry:

So the winner of 2 Jelly Babies is Alan Hogg. I think he deserves a beer myself so here are some piccies so you know him, plus his Sea 2 Summit pom poms. Well done to the 100 milers, and everyone really.
Next year – same again with one or two new routes again maybe.
