West Highland Way Race

Filed under: Running — admin @ 8:50 pm

This weekend I was marshalling on the West Highland Way Race. Six hours last night assisting Duncan Watson at the Lundavra checkpoint (where I helped to set/maintain the bonfire and saw all the leaders go through) followed by an even longer stint from 5.00am this morning sweeping the course from Kinlochleven to the Fort to bring the tail-enders home. And it was a great race, producing the second, third and fourth fastest times ever and spectacular new ‘sub-17’ PBs for popular repeat competitors Richie Cunningham and local runner George Cairns in third and fourth position respectively. So watching everyone go through after pulling out of this year’s race at the start of the May has also been prompting some serious thought on my side, but gut feeling ATM has to be that taking part is not incompatible with getting the boat afloat if I’m organised, this year’s effort was compromised from the start by the December illness wipeout and May SPA assessment, and I’m currently more likely than not to go for it again in 2010 rather than 2011!

  1. Hi Peter
    Was nice to meet you at the leisure centre, I don’t remember much about Lundavra! Sorry if I appeared a bit “vacant” when I was talking to you but my brain appears to be in hiding at the moment. Go for it again next year, you won’t regret it!
