Early start on Sunday morning for the trail runners at Kinross Forest. Thankyou to Iain McLean for been the Race Director, Alicia Ross the important role of been the sweep and to Dave Ross and Mitch Essex assisting in the marking of the two courses on Saturday afternoon.
In the short course (6.6k), it was Mitch Essex first home ably assisted by Baxter in a time of 40.34, followed by Coop 47.18 and new trail runner Dave Craig 49.00. In the Ladies, Kinisha Roweth in her first trail run was first with 52.00, followed by Alicia Anlezark 54.08 and Annabelle Hosie 59.00.
In the gruelling 14.2k course, Iain McLean set the pace with an impressive 1.21.16 (looking great for UTA22) ahead of the fast improving Michael Kennard 1.25.0) and Joel Broadfoot 1.34.54 (looking great for UTA 50).
Congratulations to all the trail runners that competed either course.
