10 February 2019Rhian Evans ran the prestigious Carnethy 5 hill race in the Pentlands and completed in an excellent time of 1:20:05 (243rd), given the very blustery conditions.
05 February 2019Iain Thomson was our sole representative at the National Masters in Hawick. In Iain’s words: Tough hilly course, but conditions good. Very high standard so reasonably pleased with my effort despite the 6k distance being far too short for me. Was passed by some of the speedy track runners on the flat bits! Iain finished in a very creditable 12th position in the M65 category.
