Ben Lomond Hill Race

12th May 2007

Grey and drizzly, but fairly mild at Ben Lomond.

Simon Peachey was the clear winner in 1:08:37 after Brian Marshall crocked his ankle on the descent. Helen Palmer had a good run to win the ladies race in 1:27:36. I finished 10th in a PB of 1:17:17 despite the greasy conditions and generally feeling lack-lustre after racing on Wednesday and straining by left ankle. Arrived at the summit in 51:00, so descended in 26:17. Could easily have descended faster if I'd avoided a few more of the greasy rocky sections.
