Calderglen Trail Races report

Kenny & Mhairi Davidson and Colin Williams took part on the Calderglen Trail Races on Friday night. It's Kenny's old club from before he moved back to Peebles. Mhairi was off first in the 5km and Colin and Kenny did the 10km. The race takes place in Calderglen Country Park on the edge of East Kilbride and is very picturesque and technically very challenging in places with lots of short steep descents and digs, and natural obstacles - roots, trees, puddles and rocks along with a big dose of steps thrown in.

Mhairi did very well completing the 5km in 24:29 as the 6th Female (and 1st and only Junior Female)

In the 10km Colin finished in 40:58 in 14th overall and 7th MVet, while Kenny clocked 43:41 and was 4th M50 (27th overall). Good sandwich and biscuit spread afterwards too! It was my (Colin's) first race in 3 months so felt good to give it a go.
