Anyone Fancy a Hill Race or an Ultra?

The Edinburgh to North Berwick on Saturday proved to be a scorcher as the rain earlier in the day died out, making the 20 mile route quite tough on the competitors.

Ian Sills came second overall with an impressive time of 2:10:19, with Stuart Hay finishing 4th in 2:13:55. Rhona Anderson was second female overall, finishing in 2:24:10. Lee Curtis finished in 2:40:19 just a week after competing in the Stuc a Chroin. Neal Wyatt finished in 2.44.12, Anne Hay in 2:55:41 and Neil Jones 2:59:52.

It was still pretty warm on Sunday for the Gala 10K with Grant Noble taking 6th place with a time of 35:24.

The previous weekend, the temperatures were described as like being in an oven, with Ian Rowland being the 85th finisher (out of 320 with 58 dropping out en-route) in the 53 mile West Highland Way with a time of 10:30:36.

Lee Curtis achieved a pb in the Stuc a Chroin 5000 on the same day (the 5000 representing the total climb in feet). This one is always run on the Saturday before the May Day holiday, so a date for the diary for anyone who fancies it next year......
