Wet, wet,wet at Tap O Noth

Tap o’Noth Hill race

Wet Wet Wet for Tap o’Noth this year, but still a great little race – where were the rest of you? The weather did not seem to dampen the spirit of the Rhynie Gala much. Having registered we had to rush to get “Fine pieces” from the WI stall and raffle tickets and so on, then off up into the murk. In fact, despite the warning from Simon Beeson, the organiser, conditions underfoot were OK – one guy I passed who had road shoes was complaining about a bog, but there was nothing a Cosmic would consider a problem. The route was well marked and it’s a great down hill run. Eight Cosmics (including Dave Wilkinson masquerading as Garioch) did the course. Jason was just pipped for 1st place by Craig Mitchell, but his course record still stands. Ruth Mackenzie broke her course record by 23 secs, and I think I was 4 secs slower than last year, but I got the prize for 2nd lady and Lois was 3rd. New member Gillian Clunas and Sue Buchan (renewed member?) also finished in fine style. As it was the 25th Anniversary, everyone got a medal and a goody bag – not bad for £3 entry!
