British and Scottish Championship Race
Over 200 runners ran - internationalists, shinty players and holidaymakers included. Some even entered the relays and track events in the Highland Games afterwards (and were comprehensively beaten by young speed merchants). It was a warm day and the river proved popular at the end. The photos are not in any particular order!

Cosmics - safety in numbers or hunting as a pack?

Elspeth Baxter (Westies) on 'The Rock Band'

Chasing hard and almost out of control

Andrew Wright was first up the steep exit from the river

Flotsam and jetsam?

The new Carnethy vests (Willie's and Hilary's) were easy to spot

Too hot for a vest!

They can't see the view of the Cairngorms

The up and down routes are slightly apart here

Hilary hates descending

Carefully does it (Jill Mykura)

The Monadhliaths in the background

What a shame - they'll even miss the view on the way down - if they watch their feet!

The stiff pull up past The Rock Band

Stewart Whitlie prefers the longer races
