Club 4 contest windy Carnethy 5

A field of almost 500 runners contested the Carnethy 5 Hill Race at Silverburn by Penicuik. Conditions were far from ideal with a strong wind buffeting the runners as they navigated the 6 miles course with total climbs of the 5 summits amounting to 2,500 feet.

The Lothian club had 4 runners in the race and they were led home by Christine MacVarish who finished in 1 hour 17 minutes 53 seconds to place 25th female and 7th F40. Following Christine home was fellow club members 244th & 44th M50 Paul Young 1h 20m 13s, 378th & 69th M50 Sandy Mudie 1h 32m 35s and 400th & 75th M50 Kevin Godfrey 1h 35m 20s. A total of 478 runners completed the course.
