Tinto Hillrace, 9 November

Me on the downhill - photo from SHR Tinto is a great little hill sitting above the Clyde and Biggar. Every year, runners race up to the summit and back down in times varying from 30 minutes upwards. A record field of 260 fought against the strong headwind on the uphill that made for times some 2 minutes slower than the perfect conditions of last year. Prasad Prasad and Jethro Lennox lead from the start with Jethro winning. I came 17th and 3rd vet. More on the Carnethy site and more photos on the SHR Flickr page .
