Islay Marathon

Since the club members who completed this seem too shy to write a report I thought I would put something up. 3 club members completed in the Islay Marathon on the 13th of April; Pauls, Murdo and Karine. While I think there was a slightly bigger marathon taking place down south that I believe may

Lock 27 TT

Great turn out tonight at the TT. 14 runners braved the cold wind and some even managed some great times. Gwyn was fastest, smashing the club record but falling 10s short of the all comers’ course record (Chris’s previous club record time was 15:49). Lots of first timers which is great to see. Only one

Devil’s Burdens 2014

Results | Images So I guess I’ll get the Westies reports on the Devil’s Burdens started. I was running leg 3 but got there early to pick up race numbers and make sure the team was ready. I was also looking for a lift round to the start (kindly provided by new westie Doug). After watching the

Blair Road Race (Cycling)

Cape Wrath Challenge

Myself and Claire headed north last week for the Cape Wrath Challenge. This involves a week of races finishing with a marathon distance race from Durness to Cape Wrath lighthouse and back. (It’s the marathon with the boat ride in the middle). We drove up all day Sunday, stopping in Inverness to go for a

Track racing of a different sort

While Chris has been busy enjoying himself on the new indoor running track at the Emirates, I have been getting used to a new style of racing just across the corridor. After 4 technical training sessions and a few open sessions to tune up my speed, I took the plunge and entered my first track


A great crowd of Westies turned up for the Tinto race, 18 (+1 if you include Tom who was running for Lochaber). After registration and a bit of banter we headed for the start. The genius John Q had put up the gazibo, making the likes of carnethy really jealous and keeping us nice and

West District XC relay

Two men’s teams and 1 and 2/3 women’s teams made their way to Kilmarnock for the West District XC relays. The women were off first with Ellie and Claire running leg 1. Ellie ran very, finishing in the top 10. Claire also ran well on the tough hilly muddy course, and finished with a huge
