So, that was some hell of a weekend. A tonne of you smashed the event over the slightly longer route. Bryan Marshall won for the third year running with an impressive time of 1:48:03 (which technically is a new course record, again) with Ross Macpherson hot on his heels less than a minute behind. Kirsty McLeish won the fastest female title in 2:06:38 (13th over the course) with Karlyn Sagan racing over the line in 14th place. Well done to them and to everyone who took part.

There was also high drama with two DNFs from the bike section. Brian Scally and race veteran, Steve Barnett were injured and had to withdraw from the race. Hopefully you’re making a speedy recovery. We wish you well.
We’re very grateful to the Rowardennan Hotel and the Wishing Well Cafe for the use of their carparks. With the larger participant numbers we thought it would be prudent to move the transition 150 metres up the road to afford us a wee bit extra working space. Hopefully you experienced a smooth transition.
From a management perspective we were delighted with the way things went, however, we know we can always do better. To that end we’d love to hear what you thought about the event; good or bad. We’ll be emailing out a questionnaire in the near future but in the interim if you want to leave a comment on the bottom of this post we’ll have a read.
