Hill Running

Many of our senior Hawks took to the hills this past weekend for a bit of Hill Running. The races they took part in were made extremely difficult due to really high winds.

On Saturday 5 Hawks made the trip up to Glenmore for Meall a’Bhuachaille. This race was adapted because of the bad weather making the athletes route tougher with more climbing. The 10.8 mile adapted route included in total a 2640ft assent!! First Hawk Billy Gibson finished in a fantastic 8th position in a time of 1:31:52.

On Sunday a couple of the Hawks travelled to Alva for Run of the Mill. This race covers a 14.5km route with an 850m climb. Roger Van Gompel was 22nd overall (8th v40) 1:29:03. Peter Forte was 68th overall (12th v50) 1:48:51. Peter was also one of the Hawks that had ran at Glenmore the previous day.

Well done all. A summary of all results will go on the results page in due course.
