Simon Triger Memorial Dumgoyne Handicap

ResultsOn a warm sultry evening, most people's times were down on my estimates, no doubt due to the sweltering heat...Not so young Alastair Graves, who marked his Dumgoyne debut by starting last, finishing first, and posting a scorching time…

SIPR

Unexpectedly, I ended up with an entry in this year's Scottish Islands Peaks Race, running with Graham Kelly. SIPR is a combined sailing and running event: three sailors and two runners (who run as a pair). The race starts in Oban with a short…

Ben Lomond 2012

ResultsWell what a fantastic day out and well organised race! The first thing to say is thanks to all those Westies marshalling at the parking, start and on the hill and making it possible for us to run. I tried to say hello to as many as possible,…

Stuc 'a Chroin 2012

Stuc a' Chroin -- the race I love to hate. Start with a long slog up the forest track, followed by a walk-jog up Glen Ample with its rewarding but brief descent, and then the day really gets underway with the seemingly endless climb up Beinn…

Black Crock 5, Kinghorn

This was my first run of any kind since the Darnley/Dams run a month ago, and I didn't want to miss a grand evening out in Fife. However, the Fates were conspiring to turn a commuter rail trip to Kinghorn into something more problematic: more…

We Kaim, We Ran, We Did OK

A short post on the short Kaim Hill Race. (Apologies for the lateness.) A fair crew of Westies turned up, everyone put in a good performance and the club was well-represented in the upper results. For my part, I was the first Westie to the top…
