Lock 27 Time Trial, Winter 2010-11

Lock 27 Time Trial, Summer 2010

12th July 2010 A great turnout for the Summer time trial at Lock 27. We had a beautiful evening and some good runs. Three new PBs (Robert, Alistair, Jangbu Sherpa). Expert handicapping meant everyone was back within a 2 minute slot with first back Ellen, just 37s off a PB after a long lay off

Toronto Zoo 10k 15 Oct

Lovely sunny day – so much better than the blizzard at my last race in TO. My time was inexplicably slow (no … you’re just crap Nigel) and I can’t say I noticed any animals at the time. It was however a good day out with gorgeous autumn colours, free photos at the finish, great

Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon 2004

The LAMM 2004 was set in the hills on the south side of Glen Carron. JD partnered me (Nigel) on my first such event.

Lovely sunny day and nice location for this 5 mile trail race – one in a series of four or five. Well organised although pricey and lacking prizes ! Course out and back along rolling forestry roads – race was won by a whippersnapper from RH Cambuslang with Nige rolling in for second place. Thanks

Westies Ben Nevis Successes

Further to some sparkling individual performances at The Ben in a high class field, an excellent turn out from Westies brought home a third team placing. Westies came in as 3rd team behind the local Ben experts (Lochaber in 2nd) and probably the strongest team in the UK just now (Bingley in 1st). This reflects
