Howling gales didn't deter 9 runners turning up for this first 5km
handicap race of 2005.
Coach, Ian Rowland, decided to throw tradition to the (prominent) wind
and devised a road run rather than the usual 5km track event.
Starting at their alloted times the runners took to the streets,
coming together for what nearly turned into a sprint finish.
Absence from the Black Bun Run on auld year's night meant Ian Sills
had sufficiently "fresh" legs to see off other challengers.
