Jacob wins at Ben Ledi

Congratulations to Jacob Adkin for the win at Ben Ledi on Saturday 1st July, who broke the course record too which was only set last year by Graham Gristwood (Senior GB Team for World Mountain Running Champs 2016 & 2017) ! Superb performance

Jacob's comments:
"Very well organised race on what could/should be a classic hill race that will hopefully become much more popular in the years to come. I started steady at the front, then started pushing on ahead before turning onto the main path to the summit. Reached the summit with a good gap and just made sure I kept it on the technical descent. Really fun race with great support from marshals and lots of the other people on the hill which was nice! Felt really good to be back racing after 4 months out of it!"
This event is a hill race involving 750m of ascent in a circular route over “Callander’s Mountain” – Ben Ledi (879m). Details here and full results here.
