Moorfoots at Screel Hill Race

James and I ran in the second SHR counter, the short Screel Hill Race. Conditions were perfect, warm sunshine in the open but cooler in the forest - the route was about half and half. James' SHR championship jinx struck again - three quarters of the way round and well up in the field, he stopped to help the guy in front of him who was on the ground screaming in agony, having fallen and seriously injured himself. James stopped to help and that was his race over. The injured guy, Jon Ascroft of Carnethy was eventually airlifted off the hill to hospital with a suspected broken or dislocated arm. I had my best race this year, finishing 26th.
