Simonside Cairns

9th December 2007
Rothbury, Northumberland
11 miles, 1900ft

Pretty vile cold, windy, rainy weather at Rothbury, Northumberland. Wet snow and slushy ice underfoot on the hills.

The race was won by Charlie Stead in 1:20:06. I finished 8th in 1:24:55, after lying 5th until after the summit of Simonside. Stewart Barrie was 48th in 1:41:07. John Telfer was 58th in 1:43:51.

I was a bit annoyed about dropping those 3 places on the run-in from Simonside, but at least my run was more than 3½ minutes faster than in 2006 and 2005.
