Run of the Mill hill race

Monday, October 24, 2016

Continuing his theme of gnarly hill races, Iain Thomson ran the Run of the Mill race on the Ochil Hills. This is a hard 9 mile race, starting in Alva, with an initial climb out of Alva Glen, followed by fast runnable trail through Woodland Park to reach Tillicoultry. From Tillicoultry there's a steep climb to Andrew Gannel hill, with a decent run along the fenceline to the highpoint of Ben Cleuch. After Ben Cleuch there is a small rise over Ben Ever before a fast and furious descent back to Alva.

The race was won by Robert Simpson of Westerlands in a time of 1.11.06, with Iain finishing in 51st position (5th MV60) in his best time for this race of 1.51.18.
