It was wonderful to see a record field of 61 competitors turn out for Saturday’s Glas Tulaichean Uphill Race despite the rather dreich conditions on the hill. The race, which climbs 670m in a little over 7km to finish at the summit of the ‘Munro’ Glas Tulaichean, was won by last year’s Commonwealth Games marathon bronze medal winner Robbie Simpson in a rapid time of 34:15. The first female home was Virginie Barrand of Metro Aberdeen in 46:17. Well done both! Congratulations also to Billy Gibson & Catherine Matthews who each took 1st V40 place for a Hawks veteran double. Several other Hawks competed, with Ciaron Collins (bagging his first ever Munro in style), Munro Stewart, Romain Borgeal, Philip Levack, Phil Forte, Dominika Kwasna & Alan Kennedy all putting in great performances.

There was lots of positive feedback from all participants, so huge thanks to everyone who helped out on the day, including Dave & Lyn Hanlon, Beth & Angie Collins, Alan Vigrow, Catherine & Grace Matthews & Charlie Love. Roll on next year!
