Dollar Hill Race

7th July 2007

The first time I've done this race. It starts off with some road then trail before crossing Burn of Sorrow and thrashing up through dense bracken. Recent West Highland Way Race winner Adrian Davis stormed off into the lead with Stuart Simpson, Bob Wiseman, Mark Johnston, Bruce Smith and myself trailing in his wake.

After the first couple of tops I thought I was more or less established as 5th in the race, but gradually faded away to 9th as Bruce, Jon Ascroft, Caspian Richards and finally Ewan Jack all passed. Felt quite unwell by the finish. Trying to run hard with a stomach bug is not an experience I'd recommend.
