The above will take place at Claggan park Thursday 30th March at 6pm. A fun treasure hunt for the juniors will be held after the Winter League prize giving. All family members are welcome and I’m sure the juniors will enjoy having you there. Any enquiries to juniors coach Helen Smith or Margaret Rose Macphee or any committee member.

Today’s boot camp, started from north face car park, up the steep path to cic hut(tea break), crossing the track to half way lochan and over rough ground back to cic path and nfc park. The varied runs are once per month and all club members are welcome. Thanks to Linda for organising and Niall for photos.
SPECTATORS LINED THE ROUTE
Saturday was the first race in the Scottish Hill Championship series. New Abbey near Dumfries was the venue for the race up Knockendoch and Criffel. The route which is a medium category served up challenging conditions underfoot with no dry track beyond the tarmac road, mud, mud and more mud being the norm. Over 200 runners started, Finlay Wild and Ray Murdoch from Lochaber made the trip south. Finlay chased and caught Graham Gristwood(Ochils) on the downhill but eventually Graham triumphed on the road section finishing in a time of 00:50:51, Finlay finished 7secs behind in 00:50:58 and ahead of Murray Strain(HBT) 00:53:20. Georgia Tindley(HBT) was first lady with a time of 01:05:58. Ray finished in a time 01:39:05 having run the downhill with inov8 shoe ripped from toe to heel, ironically Gus Bowman had mentioned on the start line he lost his inov8 sole the previous year in the race.
