Ochils 2000s

Sunday, August 23, 2015

Colin Lamont and Iain Thomson took on the demanding Ochils 2000s race on August 22. This is a tough 21 miles from Glen Devon over all the 2000 foot summits in the Ochil Hills finishing at Stirling University. The first half is reasonably straightforward, albeit hilly, but the second half is much harder, with difficult rough terrain to the top of Blairdenon, and a nasty pull up Dumyat.

Colin was having a good race until, in his own words, "completely ran out of energy approximately 5 miles from home" - we know the feeling Colin!. Iain passed Colin with a couple of miles to go, to finish in 4.50.46, with Colin finishing in 5.14.22
