Deuchary Hill Canter, 8 Mar'09

As the name suggests, this race is more trail-race than hill-race. Instead of racing in this event, I offered to help, so I was given the task of 'sweeping'. Doing this took away the pre-race nerves and tension that I (and most runners I know) normally get prior to competing. Running on the route with the last runner, I could take in the views. Unfortunately she seemed to pull something in her right ankle and had to withdraw. About an hour into the race, the route reaches a loop, which was an excellent place to watch the runners zooming downhill on the mucky, wet path. Photos will be added to my Flickr page on Sunday 15th.
