Ben Nevis - Melantee race, July'09

A team effort was required to ensure that not only we secured the Scottish Hill Runners club team championship, but also the over-40 team prize too. So 4 of us crammed into Stewart's car and 2 and half hours later we were out having a recci of this race. Incredibly steep with a flat 1km sprint either side. The steep bit suited me, the flat bit didn't, so 10th overall wasn't a bad result and yes we secured both team prizes. We had to head directly down the road as one of us had to return for work - so cheesed off with the fine weather and being stuck in a car for hours without so much of a sniff of a hillwalk !
