Moorfoots at Screel Hill Race

Screel Hill, down on the Urr Estuary near Dalbeattie in Galloway - lovely venue....

Great wee race down near Castle Douglas. Short steep run up through mature forest onto open hill with fantastic views over the Solway Coast (if you can afford the time to look). Then a fast, technical descent through trees and over rocky drops. I managed 12th place (35:38), Julia 25th (4th lady - 40:51). Julia was just behind me at the summit but lost a few places by trying to stay in control on the descent!

Well worth the drive down.
