Saturday long run

7th January 2012 Route and stats on Garmin Connect This was one of the weekend long run options. Really a medium-long effort, it was knocked off at a good clip with the able assistance of Alasdair Miller and Alasdair Duke. Mr Duke had his trademark rucksack, and Mr Miller looked as unruffled as ever by

West District XCs, Irvine

10th December 2011 Results Another good turnout of running and cheering Westies for the annual mudfest in less-than-lovely Irvine. As expected, Shettleston and Inverclyde battled it out at the sharp end of the men’s race, while Niall and Tom fought for Westies supremacy. Niall took it on the final hill and held on until the

Caerketton Hill Swim

10th August 2011 Results There have been a few fine sunny nights in the course of the Bog and Burn series in 2011…The Whangie, The Law Breaker, Turnhouse and others….but this wasn’t one of them. The ‘burn’ element was supplied from the sky in a controversial change to the earth-bound norm. It was wet tonight…very

Turnhouse Hill Race 2011

27th July 2011 Results The penultimate race in the Bog & Burn series is alternately fast and steep, and an exhilarating route over the hill that seems far more enjoyable than the standard walkers’ path. Most of the drama took place before the race started, with one female entrant being carted off to hospital with

The Law Breaker 2011

29th June 2011 Results Glorious sunny evening for a largely inglorious Westies venture to Tillicoultry for The Law Breaker, now a midsummer Bog and Burn race after it was roused from its midwinter slumbers. The route had to be tweaked as Mill Glen is still out of action due to rockfall, so the start on

Revolutionary Serenade

22nd June 2011 Results It’s not often that a race is preceded by a song from the organiser, but before the start of the Red Moss Revolution we were treated to a wee ditty about Bavelaw to honour the land owner who stays in those parts and whose permission is required for the race to

Cairn Table – a man’s race…

4th June 2011 Results | Photos …or at least, a race without any female entrants in the compact field of 17. I was surprised not to see Don "Pot Hunter" Reid in drag, and the female prizes went a-begging. On Epsom Derby day, Westerlands had entered a carthorse (or donkey?) at Cairn Table, one J

Kilpatricks Hill Race 2011

1st June 2011 Photos | Results Unusually gloomy conditions and a damp night for a summer Bog & Burn outing, but the threatened downpour never quite arrived. Kenny Richmond won the race in 45:58, with Christina Rankin coming home as first female in 51:12. Another grand turnout of running Westies, keeping up our recent flash-mobbing

Kinnoull Hill Race 2011

18th May 2011 Bonnyman uses the power of 2 at Perth Jamie Crowe won the race and was the only runner home in under 27 minutes, but Brian Bonnyman got 2 prizes. With 2 Westies present, BB improved on last year’s 5th spot to come home second, thus bagging the runner up prize and first
