Creag Dubh


It was a warm start to the Creag Dubh Highland Games race at Newtonmore but we were cooled down slightly by the rocky river crossing before the short sharp hike up the hill. The Cosmic girls strode up the hill in pelaton formation led at various points by Anita and Lois but Shelly was in the lead at the summit! I managed to stretch out my legs on the downhill and eventually caught Shelley half way down. All the Cosmic girls finished in strong positions although needless to say as it was a British championship race we weren’t in the running for any prizes. Dennis and Bob also enjoyed their runs although unfortunately due to some chaotic time taking at the finish Bob hasn’t quite appeared in the results yet… After the race Dick Wall managed to persuade lots of runners to enter the relay event. It’s not often the Carnethy girls team are beaten but this obviously wasn’t their speciality! Inverness Harriers were the clear winners but Westies also had a good result.
