Good pics KMC, and good for you for travelling to run it.

Looks crowded and surely was slow going amongst the throng. How many in for it?

Hi 4th Gen

3,000 entered, cant get results page yet to see onday.
They started us in 3 groups under 50min, under 1hour and over 1 hour.
A piper went with each group to the start and a few mins between each group. I was in the last group and set off about 10min after the first group. it seemed to go smoothley enough.
I missed out on the MOK this year and wanted to do one asap.

I have to agree that the heat was a bit fierce. 2733 finishers this year so a few more than 2009. It was a bit manic getting away from the start line, always is because its so narrow until you get out of the park. I started in the second group but was about half way up the hill (bad organisation on my behalf) so had a lot of off-piste running to get past folk in the first kilometre. Thoroughly enjoyed the shade in Pollock park, the only problem with that was that the searing heat at 7.5k as you came back out of the park was so energy sapping!!! Kicked on in the last 2k and managed across the line in 49.03 which is a new official PB (Oban was a wee bit short of 10k :oops: ).

Will definitely put it in the diary for next year, good atmosphere!

And there were at least a couple of guys at the run proudly wearing their MOK RUN 2010 Adidas tops :D
