Ben Venue Hill Race, Oct'09

Wind gets the better of us !
Bellahouston Road Runners organised and put on this race. It was the first time run, but the weather decided to play a part. As we were waiting for the start, organiser Andy Birnie was called by the Mountain Rescue guys on the summit, who warn him that the wind on the summit was so powerful, that they couldn't stand up. So, change of plans, we would run through the forest and up to the col and back. The hill race became more of a trail race. Still ended up being quite enjoyable and I won a big bar of fruit-and-nut - now scoffed ! The photo is of Fiona Maxwell coming in first lady. Photos to follow.
