Edinburgh Elite Spartan Race

My first of many Spartan Races was awesome. Driving in and seeing Spartan Race humvees parked around the place, flags leading down from a hill to flaming hay bales, a 12 foot high apex with ropes, an ice bath covered over with barbed wire, I thought, this is going to be amazing! I lined up

Falkirk Parkrun 45

Results To Oscar’s disgust I decided to go it alone at this parkrun. After warming up I had a look around and the lack of recognisable fast runners encouraged me. The race kicked off and I took the lead. When we turned off the road at the end of the lake I could feel a

May 3k On the Green

Gargunnock Hill Race 2011

Results I thought for a while I was going to be the only Westie running but Hamilton made a late appearance just before the start. No extra points, but some Westies company at least. It was a small field compared to the last 2 years with only 36 finishers. The race took off round the
