North Berwick Law Race Wednesday 5th August 2015

This race starts and finishes at the harbour in North Berwick.

Michael and I arrived quite early for the race and had plenty of time to warm up and chat to other runners, I was keeping a look out for harriers but didn’t spot any. The race is a bit of a stampede at the beginning until the runners thin out as you make you way through the town towards the Law. This is a gradual climb until you reach the hill itself and then it is just straight up, hands on legs stuff. When you reach the top you are given a rubber wrist band to prove you have made it. Just after I left the summit Chris Downie appeared beside me, and it wasnt long before he had passed me.

I did my best not to let him get out of my sight and made my way back towards the finish. As you approach the harbour the support is fantastic and gives you a real boost.

We were handed a bottle of water and a medal. Soon Billy and Daniel appeared with fish and chips for us, a must when visiting North Berwick. Chris went off to enjoy a steak roll at the life boat center.

Then we made our way round to the chip shop where they were giving out free ice cream to the runners. Yum 🙂

Thanks to the organisers for another great race. Fantastic value at only £4. Thanks as always to Bob Marshall for the action pics. (I couldn’t see one of Chris Downie, he must have been going too fast!)

    I see you have results for the recent NBL hill race – are they out on the web or are they your own timings

    The youngster seems to be getting right into the Harriers spirit (and so does Michael). Looks fun Sadie, well done all.
