Tonight saw 11 Hawks out on the Sidlaw hills for the latest Sunset Chase race. Unfortunately there was little sight of the sunset. A total of 24 turned out for the race which continues the upward trend of support for this race. Johnny McBain set a new male course record of 35:27 and new Hawk; Jo Simpson (running for Ambleside tonight) set a new ladies course record of 42:17.
A few wrong turnings meant some got temporarily lost, but everyone got back to the finish line before the need for the head torches to come out!
This race now concludes this year’s hill racing championship series and full results of that; are on the relevant page on this website. This year’s champions are:
Overall Champion – Steve Matthews; M40 Champion – Ray Tully; M50 Champion – Alan Kennedy; M60 Champion – Dave Hanlon; M70 Champion – Steve Cromar.
Unfortunately none of the Ladies categories were fully contested
Thanks to everyone who helped out on the night.
