Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Glen Shee 9

Sunday, August 5, 2018

Ben Murphy and Mike Thomson ran the Glen Shee 9, one of the toughest races in Scotland. This starts and finishes at the Glenshee ski centre and initially heads to the east side of the road over 6 Munros, before crossing back over the road and climbing steeply to tackle the 3 Munros on the west side of the road. The race covers 33km with 1800m of ascent on unforgiving terrain. 

Ben finished in a very creditable 33rd position in a time of 4.21.31. Mike didn't fare quite so well, suffering a pulled muscle on the descent from Carn Aosda, but then did very well to finish in 5.12.38.

The race was won by Andrew Fallas in a time of 3.19.14.
