Andy Cox wins Screel Hill Race

Andy Cox won the Screel Hill Race at Palnackie, near Dalbeattie on Saturday 14th April.
It’s relatively short as far as hill races go, 3.5miles / 5.6km with 1,300ft / 400m climb. The top is quickly reached via lovely mature pine forest. The descent is fast, though you have to be careful of tree roots and a path paved with branches.
Some 50 runners took part and Andy clocked 33:56. Race details and results here
The win continues Andy's good early season form following last month's 2nd place at Criffel Hill Race (10.5km, 550m climb) by New Abbey also in Dumfriesshire.
Great showing!
