Ben Murphy and Mike Thomosn ran the Glen Shee 9, one of the toughest races in Scotland, covering 33km with 1800m of ascent and 9 Munros 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.

Big Morven Run

23 July 2018

Rhian Evans was back in action at the Big Morvern Run, part of the Lochaline Games, on what looks to have been a very scenic route up and down Loch Aline. Rhian was 3rd overall and 1st woman on the 20kish route, in a time of 1.40.42.

Run the Blades 10k

23 July 2018

Leeanne Whitelaw made the trip to the biggest onshore windfarm in the UK for the Run the Blades 10k, part of a bigger weekend event comprising a 10k, half marathon and 50k ultra. Leeanne reports a muggy midgy run. Her official time was 1.06.45, somewhat delayed by a faller in front of her, so we’ll take her own recorded time of 58.59 as a proper indication of her efforts.
