Some 25 Carnethys got up at a hideous hour of the morning and came in through the cold damp haar to marshal at the Edinburgh half and full marathon. A new start in Potterow this year combined the previous 2 starts into one very long one, but with the benefit of the University buildings being open for cafes and toilets. In the warm. Much better!
The half marathon took 27 minutes to pass the start line. That’s a lot of runners! Spotted in amongst, Sandra Chandler; but over the other side of the road so no pic. Fewer in the marathon but more Carnethys spotted (though by no means all – it looks like 10 ran), including the indefatigable Margaret. Sorry about the closed eyes Pam.
Bob J managed to dress up once again by swapping his shorts for the leggings of an elite runner who’d forgotten his. Or more likely wanted rid of a singularly ugly set of legwear.
We raise money for the club by marshalling, and for ourselves a running top (very orange but I like them; they’re quite good quality) and bacon rolls after. There was still no sign of the sun breaking through as we finished but at least the runners will stay cool. Results are here. Apologies if there is still anyone missing. Not everyone put Carnethy as their club!
