Kilpatricks race

A big James Callender race ……great weather……well organised ……laid back…..loads of helpers ….no problems. It doesn’t get much better than this. The sun was beating down when James arrived in his shades to make sure his cast of thousands knew what was what ……he handed the erection of the tent to JQ because of his

Allermuir Gallop

Went over to this wee race with Jonathan, Lisa and Trevor…….thanks again Jonathan for the transportation. Thought it was a new race but discovered that it had been run several times in last few years but never advertised before. Not sure how many started but around 40 or so, mainly HBT with several Carnethys and

Aonach mor uphill

After failing miserably on a recce of Stuc a Chroin several weeks ago I was relieved to find that there was an alternative race on Saturday and it was much shorter……Aonach Mor uphill. Quite a few of you will have done the New Year uphill race at Aonach Mor and, while the start and the

Alex Brett Cioch Mhor

The only race on this weekend was Cioch Mhor which was great as wanted to run it in memory of big Alex Brett who started the race and sadly died on the hills last year. Jonathan Weir gave me a lift up and we arrived to find a lot of other runners were also there

Dess Woods Night Race

Went up to a new race on Deeside last night. Dess Woods Night Race organised by Deeside Runners. I wouldn’t have gone all that way myself but I got a lift, as on many previous occasions, with Jonathan Weir. The race start was at an activity park which had agreed to open its cafe late to

Downhill series

Where were all the Westies in the Downhill series ? Three races which finished last wednesday at Caerketton. I missed the first, the Nebit, because I was on holiday then did the last two races. The ever-young and gravitationally enhanced Don Reid did the first two and the only other Westie was Ally MacInnes who

Ben Ledi & Lochearnhead

The weather was kind for the rescheduled Ben Ledi race and there was a high quality field with Prasad Prasad and Alastair Anthony not to mention our own fast young chaps. Much much farther down the field there was significant Westies geriatric competition. Before the race Prasad told people he had only been walking in

An Teallach

An Teallach race was over a week and a half ago so apologies for not posting this earlier. Ray Wilby organised this new race up one of our more iconic hills. To be honest it had been a few years since I last climbed An Teallach and I had grave reservations about how this race

Helensburgh Games hill race

Results Saturday and it’s the Helensburgh Highland games race as don’t fancy a long trip to Skye and Gargunnock is too much on tracks for my taste. One source says 12 noon start the other says 1pm but trust me this race doesn’t start until 2pm so don’t get there too early like I did

Glamaig

Results Glamaig is a real classic. Everything about it, the setting, the route and the organisation are spot on  ,and with an entry fee of only £5 also getting you a meal and a pint it’s hard to fault it.Drove up in the morning which is not to be recommended as its a long way
