_andy Now that's one hilly race.  Fantastic race, lots of sunshine, but a couple of bits with serious headwinds, especially at the end.  Oh, and a couple of hills too.  The splits tell the story of that (first split is the initial 0.1 mile): 7.51 6.33 6.14 7.38 7.24 6.37 6.57 5.50 6.36 9.10 8.38 5.52 6.43 6.55.  You can tell that two-mile long hill at mile eight was steep since it had a couple of switchbacks in it.  Excellent feed afterwards, especially the malteser cake.

Hamster1207 Cracking day out Gromit ! Sun was shining and the views from the top were fantastic. Enjoyed the first hill and passed a few including the lovely Sophster. 2nd hill was almost too much but chasing PentlandPounder  got me up most of it. Only problem then was my legs were shot and he passed me again on the way back down. Quite pleased with 1:47 but proves I need to work on my downhill speed. Many thanks to all including   Andy for the invite to his Fetchie Holiday in the hills. Yea - and great grub at the end !

PentlandPounder could have done without the wind for the last 5 miles - it was hellish enough, but a great route. Only got overtaken by one person on the really big hill,and it was fellow Fetchie Hamster1207. quite pleased with my time. Unaffiliated 1:42:35 1:42:35 1:46:14 58.78
