Photos - on Kings Seat

The concern in the weeks leading up to the start that we may not have arranged enough transport, proved unfounded � we managed to get everyone to the start in plenty of time and even had a couple of spaces spare. After a slight delay with the start, we got the 61 runners away shortly after 12.

Other than a problem with the positioning of the Kite on Andrew Gannel, most people found it fairly easy to get to Ben Cleuch. It was after this the problems started � Ben Ever or Ben Buck first? Then the difficult navigation to Blairdennon � made much harder because of low cloud. Finally the difficulty of choosing a route to Dumyat 4 miles of often boggy ground with some areas of thick bracken. For the last half of the course runners were seen running in allsorts of different directions.

After 3 hours and 31 seconds, Andrew Symonds of Carnegie finally made it to the finish, followed some 8 minutes later by Chris Upson of Westies. Andrea Priestley was the first woman home in a time of 3:37:25.

In all 59 completed the course, all finishing in just over 5 and a half hours.

After lots of positive feedback on the race, we�ll plan to run it again in 2008

Finally - thanks the Heather Ales who provided most of the prizes.
