Caerketton Downhill 6th Sep 2017

After spectating the last 2 years I finally plucked up the courage to try this race. Downhill is not my strong point so I thought I should face my demons and give it a go. I was very glad I did as it was great fun and I even won a prize (second FV40, OK there were only 2 running but I will take that! :-)). It was Daniel’s first time doing the race too and he also enjoyed it.

Runners are set off from the top of Caerketton at 15 second intervals and its a manic dash to the bottom of the hill. At the finish prizes are raffled off, you can win anything from a bottle of wine to a packet of teabags. Most fun! 🙂

7= Michael Greens MS 06:08
32 Chris Downie M50 07:23
44 Daniel Greens MS 08:52
46 Sadie Kemp F40 09:26

Bill’s grandchildren from Fife AC did extremely well!
10 Struan Bennet MJ 06:11
35= Ailsa Bennet FJ 07:51

    Dave’s correct, downhill running is a very special skill; and it’s good to see Michael practising that special skill at Hillend on Thursdays and therefore having a superb run at Caerketton. Congrats also to Dan on his 1st downhill race and to Sadie and Chris on recovering from THE BEN in time to hare down Caerketton.

    Yeah, downhill running (not bum sledging) is a special skill. Hat’s off to everyone.
