Weekend Fell Running News 1:

Carnethy 5, Penicuik.

The Eryri travelling bandwagon were once again in action this weekend travelling up to Penicuik, 15 miles west of Edinburgh to race in the 40th Carnethy 5 classic fell race. This race filled up in less than 3 hours and it meant an entry on the day of just under 500. It's a classic route through the Pentland Hills which takes in 5 summits in 5.6 miles.

Rob Jebb was the race winner in 48.41.

10th Math Roberts 54.25
