Ben Sheann Hill Race

Sarah and myself braved the scourge of a Scottish summer (midges) to run Ben Sheann on Wednesday, the course is 2 ½ miles with 1400ft of climb at Strathyre.

The course was changed from last year due to tree felling on the side of the hill, the new course missed out the path entirely and used a very rough route up and down through the forest.

The race was won by Adam Gatens (Westerlands), who is a junior, in a time 27:48, the first female home was Catriona Buchanan (Ochils), in a time of 31:57.

I came home in 33rd in a time of 37:42 and Sarah was in 58th with a time of 44:26.

There were 68 runners.
