Tonight saw the final race of the Bog & Burn series at Hillend Ski centre in Edinburgh. A mere (but very tough) 1.4m race up and down Caerketton hill.
Three Bellas – John Milligan, Jane Simpson and myself racing with me taking 2nd place in the womens race and Jane taking 4th place and John getting a pb for the course!
The race was followed by a tasty bowl of soup and a roll at the Steadings pub and the prizegiving for the series. Bella featured quite heavily in the line up of prizes and John and I came away armed with enough booze to open a small off-licence!
Amongst the winners were:
- Kenny Richmond for 3rd place overall
- Andy Birnie for 2nd MV40
- Iona Robertson for 2nd place in the ladies series
- Emma Birnie for 3rd place in the ladies series
- Jackie McGuire for 1st LV40
A brilliant effort from a ROAD RUNNING club eh! Well done to all.
