What a beautiful day and no snow!!!
Great turn out for the Harriers & friends at the race. In order of me remembering who was there :- Robert Walker, Tim, Janice, Rob Wilson, Andy, Mike, Julian, Kevin, Kate, Ali, Andrea, Gilly, Al (Jane’s husband),Chris, Sandy & Lynne Bennet & Duncan.
The men got 14th team and the ladies got 10th team. Mike B got 1st Policeman and Al got 1st local.
Good effort put in by all, although my effort was good my ability was not so good but I did choose to run with an injury – despite this I really enjoyed the race.
During the race I was treated to the unmistakeable tones of Chris Downie chatting away to those around him, whether he was behind me or ahead of me I could hear him and it made me smile as I am known for being a bit chatty but I think Chris is the professional here!
The Adventure Show were filming the race again and I think I was the only Harrier ‘interviewed’ on the top of West Kip, must have been going too slow, but I will apologise now if it appears on tv, at least I didn’t fall over this time though….
The support the runners received, especially from our President was great, lots of wives husbands and children were either on the course or at the finish – we are a lucky bunch!!!
Hopefully others will write a race report too and maybe even look up the results and work out how many of us were there too…. Any photos upload onto your reports yourselves or email to me for the gallery.
That’s my 6th Carnethy 5 over hopefully fitter and stronger next year!
