A blue-sky window over Penicuik last Saturday saw 3 Tuesday-nighters take on the 10K jaunt through the countryside surrounding Penicuik. Alan Elder and 'The Wilsons' - David and Robert - taking on the rather challenging, grunt-inducing hill at the start (for Alan anyway) - up and into the new loop around the houses in Howgate, over and down onto the main Peebles to Penicuik road, for a good downhill section back in to the town, past the police station to the slippery dash over a sodden field to the finish.
The winner Jamie Crowe (MJ) of Central Athletics made the trip in 34.15. Local runner Dean Whiteford came in at a very respectable 4th in 36.27.
Cheery marshals and outstanding spread afterwards!
Carlsberg don't do 'post-run-cake-fests' but if they did - they wouldn't come close!
