Bupa Great Winter Run Edinburgh – 05/01/13

This race takes place before the televised international X country event and has a quality big race atmosphere with plenty GB and international athletes mingling with the crowd before and after. The route is a nice brisk 5K clockwise run around Arthurs Seat and Holyrood Park following the Queens Drive tarmac road. The first 2 and a bit K are uphill followed by a nice fast downhill finish with plenty spectators on the sidelines shouting you on. Up with us for the day was Patrick Duffy of Heaton Harriers who made the podium finishing 2nd overall with a time of 17:33 well done Patrick and thanks for sharing your cup with us! Also well done to Tony and Sharon completing their first race since moving to the Bounders from Consett Run England. A great race and even better day out afterwards one for next year for sure thanks to you all who came and made it. Race was £20 to enter which included a long sleeved t-shirt and medal, advanced booking of return train journey was also £20 and £1.50 for a shower afterwards at Meadowbank stadium was really good value for money.
