Lairig Ghru Results

Race Report – A competitor’s view (click Read More)
A big field of 83 runners lined up in front of the Police Station in Braemar for the 26th running of the Lairig Ghru hill race on a beautiful Sunday morning. Most of the field was in front of me within seconds of the ‘gun’ but I’m told that Matthew Sullivan more or less led the whole way. The runner who ultimately finished behind him (Edward Catmur) chased hard for about two thirds of the race but described Matt’s pace on the downhill as phenomenal. He didn’t stand a chance but gave it his all and finished a creditable 5mins behind.

Deeside Duathlon Cancelled

A decision has been made to cancel the Deeside Duathlon.  The main reason was the low competitor numbers.  The club will concentrate its resources on the other 4 races that it organises throught the year.
