Carnethy 5 Hill Race

Good weather and running conditions made for a smashing day for Carnethy 5 hill race on Saturday 14th Feb. With a field of 500+ runners the atmosphere and camaraderie was great. Grant MacDonald, David Stakes and I tackled the hills, heather and scree. Grant and David came in with a time of 1:00:57 and 1:19:47 respectively and me 1:19:23. The school dinner after was a long forgotten culinary experience right enough! Great race, would thoroughly recommend it.
