Lucy at the Glencoe trail half marathon

Lucy Colquhoun, along with her dog Otto, took part in the Glencoe Trail 'Half Marathon' on Saturday part of the inaugural Glencoe Trail Running Challenge that included a 10km, half, marathon and ultra. It is a testing course  - 24.4 KM / 15.16 Miles - Elevation Gained 620 Metres / 2034 Feet. The website says
"This is a great half marathon route on the West Highland Way and sections of the Old Military Road."

Lucy was 1st F40 - 9th overall (186 starters) in a time of 2:35:06. Many congratulations on a fabulous result. Full results

Lucy comments:
"Otto's first ever race today at the Glencoe half marathon and he came first! (I only came second). Muddy, tough course but good fun. Sausages and beer are being enjoyed as our respective rewards."

The event was won by Kris Jones in 1hr 49mins with second place was almost half an hour behind! I recognise the name as he usually runs on the road and the track, and is the Scottish 10,000m and 5km champion & 2nd behind Callum Hawkins at National Cross Country!
