Moorfoots at the Petrofac Challenge

Rachael and I ran in the Petrofac Challenge at Balmoral yesterday. The 15 mile multi terrain route starts off by circumnavigating the Balmoral Estate before climbing on LandRover tracks onto open moorland. With a top prize of a trip to Abbis Ababa (capital of Ethiopia) to run in a half marathon up for grabs, both the male and female races were hotly contested. Local runner Robbie Simpson managed to overhaul Murray Strain to win in a blistering time of 1:21, the ladies race was won by Morgan Windram-Geddes of Fife AC in 1:37. Rachael kept up her recent good form finishing 6th lady and 3rd in the senior category in a time of 1:52, I finished in 6th place in a time of 1:32. This is a new race for 2012 and definitely one of the best I have ever ran in. Results are here:-
