Stuart Pringle of Deeside Runners, SWCHR Winners 2019
The Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay is a 42k relay race with 2,110m of ascent, run in 4 stages. The highly scenic course starts and finishes in Comrie village, and follows a route up and around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock. Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races. Leg 1 is fully marked, and leg 4 is partially marked.
The race is dedicated to the memory of our friend and fellow Harrier Simon Wake who died aged 47 in October 2008 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. All proceeds from the race will be donated to the fight against this terrible disease.
We had to cancel last year's race because of the pandemic, but the 2021 event will take place on Sunday 12th September, with some changes to reflect continuing official guidance about Covid.
