Morven hillrace 2011

What an amazing break in the weather – warm and no wind, just long enough for everyone to get off the top before it began to rain again.  Another good contest between Deeside and Cosmics for the prizes, with Dan Whitehead (Deeside) 1st (48′ 44″), Kevin Harper (Cosmics) 2nd (49′ 57″) and James Espie (Deeside) 3rd (50′ 28″).  Cosmics took the team prize with Kevin Harper, Tim Griffin (4th) and Chris Tomlin (6th).

In the Ladies it was another tight race with Veronique Oldham (Cosmics) first (58′ 53″), Ruth Mackenzie (Deeside) 2nd (58′ 54″) and Beckie Woodland (South London Harriers) 3rd (66′ 39″).

In the Juniors, Half Morven, Sam Burgess (Deeside) was first U18 in 28′ 40″ and Brad Arthur (unattached) was first U16 in 30′ 48″.
