David Shepherd Memorial Glamaig Hill Race

Almost the whole race can be observed from the start at Sligachan

The pack cross the old road bridge at the Sligachan Hotel

Part of Cuillin Ridge from the bottom of Glamaig - L to R, Sgurr nan Gillean, Am Basteir (+ Tooth) and Bruach na Frithe

The first runners to appear over the crest are Brian Marshall (HELP) and Alec Keith (HBT). Note: - the slope has flattened out here.

Brian is going to win his 6th Glamaig race!

It's all downhill now. You'll either love the scree or hate it!

Steven Fallon was 4th and the next day he led us up Sgurr nan Gillean, on our last Munro

Anyone like a jelly baby? Lois Noble (1st Lady) keeps her head down.

The Cuillins backdrop is just amazing

It was a hot day!
