Gypsy Glen Race

Pic - James showing how real hill runners descend....

The Gypsy Glen Race reached new heights with a fantastic turn out of runners and supporters on a glorious sunny evening.

Sixty eight runners completed the course against a strong easterly breeze which made the outward run to the summit tough going, before a wind assisted return.

The Moorfoot vests were very prominant, with no less than sixteen Moorfoots on the finishing sheet.

The field was somewhat stronger than in previous years, A. Anthony from the Ochills club winning in what looks like (to be confirmed) a course record 32'23.

First Moorfoot home was James in 34'15", taking third place and Darin not far behind in 34'53" for fourth place. Mike McGovern won the 'senior's' don't look a day over 40 !

Full results (provisional) here.

Some great pictures also available here.

(As usual, the only picture I can find of me is in my typical uphill walking pose....)
