Great run for me. First race of '93. Long hard slog up Black Hill, with a very very steep but heathery descent down to Dalveen Farm, follow rough stony path around the base of Steygail. Drop down a steep gully into Upper Dalveen, cross main road then a very steep climb up to Caplow Rig. Misty. Myself and 3 others went right too early and contoured around the hill instead of going to the summit and following the boundary fence as shown on the map. This left us with a hard steep climb up to the top of Well Hill where there was a lot of lying snow. Very cold. I think our detour was actually quicker than the actual official route and certainly more sheltered. Another steep descent down to the track and a long fast charge to the finish. Weather was cold wet and misty all day. Well pleased with my position. My legs beared up great. No problems.
