78 runners turned up for the inaugural race around the loch on Saturday Oct 24th. The rain mostly held off but conditions were very wet and slippy. Alan Reid put in a stron start but Robbie Simpson (Deeside Runners) took the lead once on the rough stuff and stayed in front for the remainder of the race winning in 36.22. Home club Deeside Runners scored well in the Women’s race with Ruth Mackenzie winning in 45.54. Thanks to Peter Henry for organising what looks set to be a popular race.
