Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Meall a‘Bhuachaille hill race

Monday, October 29, 2018

Andy Gallagher made the most of a family weekend in the Cairngorms with a late decision to run the Meall a‘Bhuachaille hill race. This is one of the Scottish hill racing classics – for those of you who have been to the Harriers weekends at Badaguish, the race starts and finishes at Badaguish, and takes in the big hill overlooking the camp. Conditions sounded distinctly chilly, but at least the snow held off until Andy had finished.

Andy finished in 1.28.52, 46th overall, and 7th MV50.

The race was won by Joe Mann of Ambleside, a runner with an impressive CV, including being the youngest person to complete the Ramsay round 0f 23 Munros around Ben Nevis, the Mamores and the Grey Corries.
