The last race in the 2016 Hill Racing Championships took place at Mealle a Buachaille in the Cairngorm mountains on Saturday 22nd October. Three Hawks took part in the race – Billy Gibson, Chris Walsh and Phil Forte. Billy Gibson needed to run to complete the six required races – 3 Medium Category and 3 Short Category races. After running the Amsterdam marathon in a PB of 2:43 last weekend, Billy wasn’t sure if he could do that but he did and in the end had a fine race leading the hawks home. Billy is the V40 Champion
Although Chris Walsh completed six races and was first senior in all but 1 of them, unfortunately he did not complete 3 short races, so the Senior Men’s Championship goes to Munro Stewart this year.
Phil Forte ran all but 2 of the series of races and had won the V50 Championship back in August.
No other age categories or women’s categories were contested this year
Thanks and well done to everyone who took part and hope to see more of you competing next year
