HBT v Westies Grudge Match

5 Westies raced and 2 came to support ( Thanks Grim and Lizzy). This was a fun day. The route got shortened to 2.5 miles so short sharp and fast! However the snow was up to our knees and ice black and dangerous! Once on the hill you could wade deep in snow a long

Scolty

Results | Photos by Allan Gebbie This was a Championship race so just under 200 runners turned up for this. The Westies travelled in style by hiring their own mini bus and even allowed the opposition on it! (Shettleston and Ochils). Thanks to Sharon for the organisation which went so smoothly on the day. I did not

Dumyat

Results Third in the Bog and Burn series. A great wee race. Results are now up on the Stirling Uni website.  There was a great Westie turn out and some great performances. Gregor was 6th and James 12th followed closely by Owen and then Chris. I wont list everyone!  I love this race especially the

Dumyat Dash

Results I feel as ladies captain I have to report on this race as Westies ladies won the day! My first hill race for at least two years and it felt great to be back. This was a cold day which turned to sleet at the top of Dumyat. A trail  started us off then

Kielder marathon

This was my first marathon and I wanted it to be a trail. It started at Leaplish waterside park in Kielder/ Northumberland. It rarely leaves the shores of Kielder water following the lakeside way. It has about 800ft of climb involving short sharp switchback bends. A wonderful event that is superbly organised. Markers every mile

Earls Seat by Moonlight

This was the third night hill run of the season and a fantastic 17 Westies turned up. It was a great run. About half made it to the first cairn and the rest made it all the way to Earl’s Seat. Some even did Earl’s Seat twice!!! (not from the beginning). There was a good

Drum Fada Chase

This was a great race. Only two Westies namely Jo and myself. An occasional westie Tom Smith won it! Surprised not to see Brian but remembered what day it was! It was a chase from the start as the pack sped off up hill through forest and rough terrain to climb 350m. Then followed a

Loch Lochy Munros

There were only two Westie representatives at Achnacarry on saturday and i was hoping for a piggy back from manny! It was a very very hot day and amazing views. The track into the forestry was a good warm up..or boil up! Sadly the arrows were facing the wrong way for the descent and a

Aonach Mor Uphill Race

Results Late starting but this was a blessing for some who were nursing hangovers! At about 11.10 we started the new year by blasting up towards the cable station. The conditions were perfect. Ok it was cold but the ground was firm and no ice on the trail so a good grip as we ascended.
