Who's a race junkie then?

Unread postby Twiggy » Sun Dec 04, 2005 8:47 pm

A couple of years ago Alan Meiklejohn and I battled it out all year to see who could do the most races in 2002. He won on 60 to my meagre 58. the next year I managed a whopping 68. Last year was a bit of a washout for me with injury and I only managed 41. This year I have heard that adopted Fife AC runner Bob Thornton from Dundee Hawkhill is currently on 65 this year and is aiming for 70! whereas I have only a paltry 46 to my credit.

Is there any other competition whores out there who could perhaps challenge these figures?

Brian,
Did they give you a TAY 'O' fixture list on Sunday or do you want me to bring you a copy .. lots of wee events in 2013 and this year's LONG'O' is over the Lomonds in June (so, no snow drifts!)

ps. my excuse :oops: for Sunday was that I missed out on the last coloured map and had to make do with a black and white photocopy .. urban orienteering maps are not improved by 50 shades of grey :lol:
