Well done to everyone who took part yesterday and a huge thanks to the organisers behind it . Another great event to put Kintyre Way and the area on the map .

it was good to know everyone made it back safe and injury free but felt sorry for the teams who got lost on the last leg and added another 6 miles onto their chunk . It was great to be on the other side as a marshal this year but I did miss being part of it so maybe , I say maybe , JS will have two teams next year . :wink:

Was marshalling 5 to 7 and was there to see many great finishes including our very own 'Wee Toon Runners' and the first ultra runner - so impressive - well done everyone :D

I was absolutley DREADING my section (Tarbert to Cloanaig) not just because I'd need to get up at 4am on a Saturday but because Tommy and I walked a few miles on the Thursday evening and just realised how tough the rouge was - MEGA HILLS argh!!

But after the first 4 miles of hills we turned left onto the path and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The views were spectacular, team spirit and banter brilliant and home baking at clachan a bonus!

I thought all 3 campbeltown teams did fantastic and was proud to be part of it. Enjoyed the night out to celebrate too although it was no heels for me due to my blisters!

Thanks to the organisers, looking forward to next year!

Just read the results of this year's race on, its official now, we (The 4x4's) took 4th place. A position that never looked possible after a very poor baton change over on the 3rd leg, sorry boy's maybe next year. 8|

My thanks go out to Tommy Morran, Stuart McGeachy, John Galbraith, Niel John MacPhail, and the man of the day for us Hendrie barbour, everyone played a major part in gaining this teams finishing position so thank you all, it was a pleasure to have you all in my team guy's.
