Dawn Gleeson took on the full-length Mighty Deerstalker race, over 16km of hills and trails, through rivers and assorted obstacles on the Traquair estate in the Borders. The Deerstalker is notable for being a night race, and is generally acknowledged to be a very tough proposition.
Dawn had a good outing, finishing in a time of 2.57.13, in 10th position in the FV50 category.
Unfortunately, the event saw the death of one of the participants, Morpeth nurse Heather Foggo, who became ill near the start of the race and died en route to hospital.
