Cosmic Championships 2009 and Ben Rinnes

The 3rd race for the 2009 Championship was Ben Rinnes 5 Tops on Saturday 25th July from Dufftown Highland Games. 90 or so people plus 2 dogs started, 85 people (including 16 Cosmics) and both the dogs finished the race. It was rather boggy in places, but otherwise conditions were good – not too hot and the rain that threatened occasionally kept off. Simon Peachey had a great run for 2nd place behind Andy Symonds who lowered John Duncan’s 2000 record by 5 secs, Veronique Oldham was 3rd woman and 1st FV40. Back at the field, everyone could enjoy ice cream, venison burghers and watch the last of the heavy events and pipe bands in the sunshine.
