Allermuir Gallop

Went over to this wee race with Jonathan, Lisa and Trevor.......thanks again Jonathan for the transportation. Thought it was a new race but discovered that it had been run several times in last few years but never advertised before. Not sure…

Cowal Games Hill Race

Photos 5 Westies (although Kenny Taylor was (controversially) wearing Dunnon Hill Runners attire) took part in the Cowal Games Hill Race in Dunoon on Saturday. The start of the race saw us piped up the main street in Dunoon to acclaim from the…

North Berwick Law

  Finally remembered about the North Berwick Law race this year (usually remember the day after) !   Despite being fairly short, the course appealed – start in the middle of town by the harbour, run through the streets before…

Nebit Moonrace

Results What a wee cracker of a race! Ochil Hillrunners' second running of this night race seemed a great success all-round. Spot-on weather, grippy conditions and almost 80 runners this year - and no broken legs! Headtorches primed we dashed…

Cow Hill Race

This was the last race of Lochaber's 'Triple Hirple'.  For you that don't know including myself until I looked it up there, 'Hirple' is Scots for limp gait or to cramp up, all makes playful sense now. All of the Westies that ran with me…

A fine day for trotters

Last Saturday, and a fine sunny one in Holyrood Park. Five Westies (plus a friend/apprentice) turned up for the annual procession of brown - and other - vests round the undulating Bog Trot. Starting near the back of the field, I saw little of…

Portree Highland Games

Drove up to Skye on Wednesday to run in the Portreee Highland Games hill race. Beautiful day and the roads were fairly quiet so arrived about an hour or so before the race. The games are held in a wee natural amphitheatre just a few hundred…

Laurencekirk & Tomintoul

Having been reminded by Captain Chris that there was a race at Laurencekirk on Saturday morning I noticed that as there was 4 hours between their start times it would be possible to run this race plus TomnaBat at Tomintoul Highland Games. It…

Saugh Hill - Girvan

I'd never done this wee race before and I can really recommend it. Only 21 runners and luckily most of them were not hill runners so I managed 7th place. None of the fast chaps were on show probably due to the number of race options last weekend…

Chapelgill - belated report

I'd hoped Murdo, Don, Malcolm or Ros would write a report for Chapelgill but no sign of it so here goes. A field of 50 plus turned up for this great wee race just outside Broughton. I'd done it twice before and had ran not too badly the previous…
