|Colin in action...|
A capacity field lined up at the start, with six Moorfoots in the mix this year, looking to put down a good start to the season. Despite the sun being out for this year's race, a cool breeze kept the temperatures on the chilly side, but still ideal racing conditions.
First Moorfoot home was Mike Reid (57:05 7th) securing a top 10 placing in a strong field.
Wull Hynd, returning after rest from a niggling injury, put in a strong run for 11th place in 58:36 (and 3rd MV). Mike McGovern's 24th place (61:22) secured an overall Moorfoot team placing of 4th, behind Costorphine, HBT and Lasswade.
Darin came home close behind in 61:41 (28th), with a very strong run from Colin Williams (62:55, 37th) showing that his early season training for a Spring marathon must be going well.
Last Moorfoot home was Kenny in a new PB of 64:39 (47th) - more than a minute faster than last year !
This years race also incorporated a Scottish Vets series leg, and a chance catch up with some former clubmates from Calderglen Harriers. I heard you liked the 'hills'...!!
