After the weather we had on the days leading up to the race I was rather concerned we might get a soaking, but on the day the weather was cool and breezy although on the whole dry. This couldnt be said for the ground underfoot which was saturated to the point of turning some of the paths into streams. The route takes you from reservoir to reservoir, starting and ending on the shore of Threipmuir. You pass, Loganlea, Glencorse, Bonaly, Torduff, Clubbiedean and Harlaw reservoirs before returning to the starting point at Threipmuir Farm where food is laid on. The spread is fantastic with a big pot of soup bubbling on an open fire and an expansive array of cakes. The fire was also burning in the farmhouse so you could get changed out of your wet things in comfort and there is now a composting toilet (an addition since last year) where there was even the luxury of scented candles.

      Scented candles?! Was that to mask the smell of soggy trainers? Was slightly worried after all that rain that you would be running the “One reservoir” race- well done to everyone, extra impressive after all that dancing the night before 🙂
