This is a fast race with a lot of club runners, the description on the website is: ‘the route is on the open winding starting from the end of Turnhouse Road and circling Turnhouse Golf Course and Cammo. There is a fast downhill start before doubling almost towards the town and round Cammo, a good uphill is quickly followed by a sharp downturn in the road to the 3mile mark. Just before the 4 mile mark there is another incline before the course drops to a fast finish just off Turnhouse Road’. There seemed to be more uphill than down, but maybe thats just me 😉

Very well done to Amy Kerr for winning the W40 category, even though she was wearing a Portobello top! 🙂
