So I managed to sneak away from work early on Saturday to run the club race which is run in conjunction with Garscube, Clydesdale and Maryhill at Mugdock Country Park. I took along the trophy which I had surprisingly won last year not expecting to see it again but only one other runner turned up so I ended up winning it again by default, although I still had to slog through muddy fields for 6 miles for the privilege.

On paper the route looks flat but unfortunately we were not running on paper. Robert's description of the route was, "if you count more than 12 hills you have gone the wrong way" so that about summed it up.

Did not wait for the prizegiving as I wanted to get the final 5 miles done before I seized up so Chris collected my 1st Vet 40 prize and Michael's 2nd vet 40 prize. Had a wee latte before heading off and boy does that give you a wee kick, might plan that for the Highland Fling drop bags.
