Baza Brilliant race, well into double figures for this one. Weather is unpredictable so be prepared for anything from Snow to Sunshine - and the gauranteed headwind in the 2nd half. *Update* What a day, enjoyed the race no ends and it's got to be the best weather I can remember ever seeing at Clova. Started steady knowing what was coming and picked up in the second half, even managed a sprint finish - well the Kinross guy started it...lol Carnegie Harriers 1:23:13 1:26:48 1:29:00 1:33:08 62.76

HappyG(rrr) What a great race - beautiful setting, challenging course, great company (met loads of fetchies) and soup and pint after was brilliant! Oh and a PB. Woo hoo! Harmeny AC, Kinross Road Runners 1:23:07 1:33:12 1:33:12 64.03
Little Stoker Not running ( or training ) as well as last year, but hope for approx. 1.40-1.42ish. Great race if you are running well, but a stinker if you're not, and die in the headwind coming home !UPDATE : Calm day with a wee breeze. Got into a groove early on, and stuck with what was a comfy pace. Never gave it everything, so pleased with the time to finish the season. Lovely pea n ham soup and a pint of Guinness. Unaffiliated 1:36:00 1:40:58 1:42:00 1:40:58 59.10
LouLou My legs are buggered after Amsterdam.  I need to stay under 1.30.  And a course PB would be great! UPDATE:  2ND female, retained team prize, felt comfortable most of way, legs buggered from about mile 9-11 but picked up a wee bit. Dundee Hawkhill Harriers 1:23:46 1:27:15 1:30:36 71.96

run2thehills Not looking for a PB just a decent run. Have done the course before and loved it.
Confirmed entry now so looking forward to it! UPDATE : Weather held dry. Breezy on the way out and much hillier than I imagined. Ran the first half too fast and faded after about 9. Great race thought. Pint in the Clova Inn and Lentil soup went down a treat. Did a PB for the course. Defo back next year. Stonehaven Running Club 1:42:15 1:44:43 1:50:00 1:51:19 55.63
