43rd 'TISO' Carnethy 5 Hill Race

It was an almost perfect February day for running as 535 started the 43rd Carnethy 5 race, a record, as was the number of finishers ...530, with 115 of them Carnethy Runners.
First timer, Finlay Wild of Lochaber, won by almost a minute. Perhaps he had been having special coaching lessons about the course from his clubmate Jimmy Jardine, who completed his 43rd race (a little bit slower than Finlay)! However, Finlay had to really fight hard to get the win from 5 times winner, Rob Jebb of Bingley, as Rob kept with Finlay all the way to the top of Carnethy and kept trying to break away from Finlay. In the end it was Finlay's superb descending skills off the summit of Carnethy that won the race for him. Following in 3rd place was another from south of the border, Mark Addison from Helm Hill Runners. Club Captain Andy Fallas was first from Carnethy in a superb 4th place.

Angela Mudge won the women's race for an amazing 14th time. She doesn't appear to be getting any slower with age (she was, of course, first Over 40 woman as well) and she recorded exactly the same time, to the nearest second, as when she won last year. This year she was the only female to get under the hour, with the next two, Sarah McCormack (Moorfoots) and Charlotte Morgan (Carnethy) battling to the line seconds apart and seconds over the hour. Hilary Ritchie (Fife) was first Over 50 woman and another cross border raider, Wendy Dodds (Clayton-le-moors), first Over 60.

Kenny Richmond (Shettleston) defended his Over 40s title with a fine 6th place in 52:44 (his three wins at Over 40 level have all been within 10 secs of each other); while Stewart Whitlie broke the Over 50s record by a minute and a half, recording 54:45 and 11th overall. Scottish Over 60 champion Ewan Paterson (Moray) won the Over 60s and Keith Burns from the host club, first Over 70.
Last year Shettleston beat Carnethy to the men's team title, this year Carnethy got their revenge. The Carnethy women also won, with Moorfoots second.

A record seven runners (Gordon Pryde, Terence Brannan, Susan Davis, Alan Coltman, Brian Brennan, Tony Stapley and Colin Pritchard) completed their 21st race to win a Quaich and have been added to the 21 race club page here. Susan Davis (Northumberland) was not only the second woman to achieve this, but also became part of the first married couple to complete 21 as her husband, Geoff, has now completed 23 races! Also worth a special mention is James Rowley (Law & District) who completed his 40th race! Bill Gauld got round in 95 mins a few days short of his 80th birthday.
