Lovely warm weather with a cool breeze made for ideal running conditions on our regular Scolty routes which were enjoyed by Mark Crawford, Jan, Sarah, Lesley, Fiona, David Cutteridge, Gordon, Shirley, Jack and John Mac.
Tonight we met at Knockburn Loch to do the Robbie Simpson Challenge. After a few rounds of warmup, we divided into two groups and ran to the clock. The weather was fine and the scene just perfect, so we all found it quite fun and refreshing to do something a bit different. Runners were Elliot, Lesley, Jack, Alex, Fiona, Rachel, Lynsey, Wendy and John Mason. Well done all on times recorded. See the Strava leaderboard.
Small turnout tonight with Alex, Jack, Paul and Lesley.
Welcome aboard to Colin who joined us from the C25K course on this Crathes Castle run with Alex, Jack, Lesley, Wendy, Seb, Paul and Gordon too.
Tonight was the graduation of the JogScotland Banchory Running Club “Couch to 5k” course and we look forward to the next stage of their exciting path in this great sport. Regular runners tonight included Sarah, Jack, John Mac, John Mason, Lynsey, Mark and Rachel.
Not everyone could manage the midnight run, so I was pleased to see Collin, Sarah, Lynsey, Rachel and Paul still getting their fill of Scolty at the regular time of 6.30pm
Jack enjoyed the Hill of Fare race put on by the Cosmic Hillbashers, while Mark Mosgrove tackled a gentle Scolty route ahead of the tough Lairig Ghru marathon on 25 June. The C25K group is now in their penultimate week.
Yet another rainy day in Deeside, but not as heavy as Tuesday. Mark Crawford, John Mason, Sarah and Jack enjoyed the dreach day using the 5 and 8km routes.
It was raining when we started and by the time we finished it was bucketing down cats and dogs. Sarah and Jack took the 5k route, which is really 6k when starting and finishing at the Guide Hut instead of the bridge, while Rachel, Wendy and Seb enjoyed the 8k route. (Did I mention it was raining? – It most definitely was!)
