Pentland Skyline, 12 October

Starting practically from my back garden, this race is one of the best hill races on the Scottish Hill Runners calendar. This year it was also the last race in the inaugural SHR Long Series. With 16 miles and 6,200 feet over varing terrain, the 170 runners had their work cut out. I did the route in just under 2:55hr, a few seconds slower than last year, but not feeling anywhere as nackered at the finish. More info here. Photo courtesy of Anne and Ian Nimmo.
