Race Report – Tartan Skidaddle Ultra marathon and Duathlon -10 April 2016

Race Report – Tartan Skidaddle Ultra marathon and Duathlon -10 April 2016

It was with some trepidation that I headed to The Great Tartan Skidaddle yesterday morning at 6am. Having never run an ultra, in my wisdom I thought it would be a good precursor to the Devil o The Highlands. All contestants met in Callander and were bussed out to Inversnaid for the start of the race. The duathletes left ten minutes before us then we were off. The first stage of the race is an undulating trail with stunning views of Loch Arklet to the first checkpoint at Stronachlachar. We were blessed when…Read more

Renfrewshire AAA 5 mile road race Greenock 7 Feb 2016

Renfrewshire AAA 5 mile road race Greenock 7 Feb 2016

The Renfrewshire AAA 5 mile road race took place at Battery park in Greenock on 7 Feb 2016. The wind is always a challenge for this Club Championship race, but this year high winds and heavy rain had caused the approach road to Greenock to be blocked causing long travel delays. Just getting to the start line was therefore a major achievement and unfortunately not everyone made it, with several turning back or arriving after the race had started. Battery Park had its own flooding problems with 30m long puddles, knee deep in…Read more
