Last Saturday, Iain Ridgway, Clive King and I ran the 53 mile Highland Fling race - a wonderful event that starts in Milngavie and ends in Tyndrum.
234 competitors ran this year, some from as far afield as Australia and Canada. This is definately a race to consider if you are thinking about getting into ultras. There are 4 support stations where runners can access their food bags and water, so can be run without the need to organise a support crew.
Iain had a strong run coming in 8th in 8:24:01, I came in first lady (25th overall) in 9:19:01 and Clive King showed true endurance completing the course in 14:42:00
