Luckily the race was far easier than the name. A pleasant enough saunter along the Fife Coastal Path from Lower Largo to Elie, about 50% of it running on soft sand. There was a small climb up to a mast at 63m, followed by some cliff-top running on a very narrow path, and then the famous slithery descent down greasy steps covered with wet grass. The kilometre was along a beach, finishing outside the Ship Inn at Elie. The race was won by Chris Russell of Fife in 36:52. First lady was Trudi Thomson of Pitreavie in 43:26. I finished 7th in 40:12.
