1st May 2010
On a day when the Scottish Mountains brought everything to the party - snow, rain, strong winds and sun, the weather took its toll on the runners as they posted slightly slower times this year. 151 runners from 44 clubs and 27 unattached runners, completed the race in fine spirits. It was good to see new runners joining the old hands this year from Scotland and England, although the prize for the furthest travelled must go to David Murray from Grande Prairie, Alberta, who arranged his holiday so that he could take part.
Robbie Simpson finished in 2:15:41, ahead of Brian Marshall 2:22:37 and Stewart Whitlie 2.24.51. In the females, Angela Mudge finished on 2:32:38, ahead of Andrea Priestley 2.47.32 and Kerri Weatherhogg on 2.48.46
Other categories of winners were
Brian Marshall - Male Vet 40+
Andrea Priestley - Female Vet 40+
Ronnie Gallagher - Male Vet 50+
Alison West - Female Vet 50+
Eddie Dealtry - Male Vet 60+
The Team Prize went to Carnethy with 4 runners totalling 9h 52m
The local prize went to Phil Williams from Dunblane
Once again, many thanks to everyone who contributed to this years event. Organisers, back room boys and girls, marshals, and prize-donators who all excelled themselves and contributed to a great day out. None of it possible of course, without the permission from Glenample Estate and their assistance before, during and after the race for which we are all grateful.
Thanks again also, to our sponsors for their continued support; Highland Spring, Tiso, Pete Bland, Thomas Allen, Kingshouse Travel and Sula Furnishings. Big thanks also, to the Munro Inn for their help this year; Tony and all the staff for organising the soup, the Marquee and providing the bar at the Ceilidh.
Finally, thanks to everyone who helped make the Ceilidh such a rousing success again this year, the bar staff, band, organizers and of course, everyone who attended.
