Baza Having not run this before and with Gauldry cancelled I thought I'd give it a go. Hard course and narrow in places but good all the same. Enjoyed my run and was quicker on the secnod lap too Carnegie Harriers 37:52 1:09:08 39:47 65.07
Dancing Boy Ach, 2 minutes slower than last year. Nowt in the legs. Edinburgh Athletic Club, Jogscotland - Edinburgh Run4it 37:53 68.73
Lexo First circuit went OK , second time up the  hill was painfull but seemed to be a shared agony rather than just mine!
enjoyable run Musselburgh & District Athletic Club 42:47 43:43 60.79
Ribenaface (RFSQL) OK race, probably did the first lap a bit fast tbh.  A bit frustrating in places try to squeeze past people but it's my own fault for setting of from right near the back :-) .

EDIT... hang on, there some mistake here, they've given me someone else's results I think.  My race NUMBER (rather than my name) clocks at 41.04 which seems more likely (plus the right club vests are in front of me with those results).  Well, they are provisional results I suppose.  

EDIT... results updated by the Haries - 41.04 is right. Carnethy Hill RC 1:01:39 41:04 62.84
RichyC Garmin measured the course at 5.82m.  Official time 40.00 (85th of 203). Still finding my feet at xc but this was the first time I can say I enjoyed it.  Deliberately set off conservatively and paced the run better than previous xc attempts. Overall good tough workout. Unaffiliated 48:43 40:00 64.49
Vic Mason This was a tough XC race in pretty much ideal weather conditions apart from the slight headwind near the summit. I thought I started off at a reasonable pace but felt completely gubbed by the time I reached the trig point.  The narrow descent wasn’t ideal for overtaking but good for a rest bite.  Not only did you have the joy of going round the Braids once, the bu**ers sent you round for a second time just for good measure.  Next year I’m going to put on a wig and call myself Sheila, one lap was brutal enough!  Finishing position 65/203 Kirkintilloch Olympians 42:24 42:24 39:19 70.24
Zorba A diabolical run on my part....back to the drawing board big time !After the first lap there was nothing on the clock but the maker's name.... Kirkintilloch Olympians, Xania Harriers, Cartha Harriers, PH Racing Club 47:59 61.49
