Red moss kips 2019

Looking out my window at teatime I was regretting my decision to pre-enter the race this year. The rain was battering down and I was picturing myself as a drowed rat at the top of West Kip. As it turned out I needn’t have panicked as by race time the cloud had lifted and the rain had eased. Unfortunately this gave way to clouds of midgies and we were all jumping around like highland dancers trying to ward them off. Once the race got underway this wasn’t a problem and we were able to enjoy a lovely, if a little muddy race.

    Is that midges I see in that smiley photo. You can always tell a happy runner, the ones with the flys/midges in their teeth. Good efforts guys (sorry I wasn’t there but had opted for the CAAC 5).

    I had intended walking up to see the runners going over The Kips but the forecast rain put me off. It was good to hear that you all survived and the forecast was rubbish. I’ll put it in my “watching diary for 2020”. Well done all.
