Report from William Nicolson

Cosmics raid most northerly hill race again….

Ben Abrahams takes race (previous cosmic winner Rob Brooks 2010)
On a bright but very breezy day, 2 cosmics and Ben’s cycling buddy (a guest cosmic for the day), enjoyed a cracking race and some excellent post race food & cakes from the North Highland Harriers club.
Good fast running at the start and end, sandwiched some deceptively tricky climbs, descents with a big helping of knee deep peat bogs, which made for a tough but very entertaining race.
Ben took to the lead out of the start, and was chased hard by some HHR guys up from Inverness, but was never headed as he steadily pulled away as the going got tougher.
There were fleeting thoughts of a cosmic 1-2 in the early stages, but the steep climb soon sorted that – but after calling on some peat bog dancing skills I managed to hang on for a probable lifetime best of 3rd, just!
Well done to Ben – who afterwards set off to cycle back to Aberdeen via the middle of nowhere – good effort!

North Pole Marathon

Jonathon Bellarby writes of his exploits at the pole:

“Finished in 5:38, so not exactly fast, despite a reasonably flat course. 9th overall out of 44. Was cool (-34 deg C) – nearly as bad as Kerloch on a winter’s day.

I’ve double checked all extremities and they are still attached. Hurray!

Slightly hung over at moment. This may relate to the event being organised by Irish and Russians?”
