Cort-ma Law Race - 22nd June

6 miles / 1720ft
Results| Blair's report
When it comes to Bog and Burn races, Cort-ma Law is the real McCoy. Enough emerald green bog to keep the staunchest hill runner happy. And a nice tussocky descent into the gully for a genuine burn crossing.
First three were 1) Des Crowe, 2) Stuart Simpson, 3) Alan Smith (who travelled all the way from Aviemore)
These three also lead the Bog and Burn series (lowest scores from 4 races), with Des on 9 points, Stuart 11 points, and Alan 12 points.
First lady was Alison Winship of Garscube, who has moved into first place in the ladies' Bog and Burn rankings.
There are 2 races left in the series: Maddy Moss on July 20th and Caerketton on August 10th.
