Just about perfect conditions for a winter night race. Still, full moon and snow on the ground. Dess Woods, the second in a three race winter series organised by Deeside Runners was won by Hamish Battle, Metro Aberdeen RC, in a new record time of 34.33. First female was Sally Wallis, Deeside, in 42.12. Two juniors to watch. Joseph Wright was fourth overall in a time of 36.37 and Eilidh Campbell was first junior female in 44.23. Thanks to all the marshalls and Deeside Activity Centre for the excellent after run soup and BBQ. Final race in the series is Potarch Hill on 9 February.
