Hillrunning ,SHR champ races +others coming up

Unread post by jocelyn Scott » Tue Mar 20, 2018 10:25 am

The remaining 5 SHR champs races still give you great chance of doing really wel/getting your coveted SHR mug anywayl as your best 4 races are your final points as long as you do one Short,one Medium and a Long,plus another one. So you have missed a Short( the steepest craziest luckily) and would have to do Glamaig on Skye for your Short,remaining list as follows: Sunday,3rd June Yetholm ( a Medium-you run into England around some hills and back into Scotland,if I remember right...);Glamaig on Skye Saturday,7th July;Ben Rinnes Sat,28th July( a great Highland Games race at Dufftown with dancers and pipers marching in full regalia etc,a fully marked course well marshalled with water stations and the easiest of thel Long races ; Sat,18th August Ochils 2000( a real monster of a Long, many climbs, longer,rougher route,navigation or at least knowing the route and we could lelp with recce bits); finally Ben Resipol at remote Ardnamurchan on Sat,15th September.
But before or in amongst the champ races,Fife hill runners tend to turn out for Clachnaben on Sat,14th April-a great rough course starting in middle of forest at Strachan,nr Banchory-gazebo full of cakes and kegs of beer for afterwards in forest ; local short xc style one Norman's Law hill Sat 28th April; 5th May Stuc o Chroin but near to next lot so.. Wed night,9th May,Dumyat,Stirling or Saturday,12th May Ben Lomond Sat,12th May -or both?;Thurs night,17th May Kinnoull hill race... All hill races very cheap( compared to road anyway,most approx fiver to enter,but some prenentry ones more. Best is to join Scottish hillrunners(www.scottishhillrunners.uk) ,only£10 ,as you get free SHR calendar sent to you with loads of info and/or just keep an eye on their website and also scottish hillrunners facebook page..Note entries for Ben Lomond now open and it does fill up fast.I haven't entered yet....

Note I've edited the date for the Clachnaben Hillrace,Strachan,nr Banchory the one starting middle of forest-
See post on facebook 28th Feb:
"Clachnaben race date change - Note that the date for this year's Clachnaben race will be on Saturday 14th April.

This is a change to what is held on the printed calendar (7th April)"
It's a Medium,13.6 K /690m climb and only a fiver to enter.If you look it up ,think it says there is preentry with Webscorer but so far it has always been enter on the day and that may still be available,will check.
