Glen Ochil Ultra

17/10/2017

On 30th September 4 members of Dumfries Running Club headed to the Ochil Hills in Perthshire for the Ochil Ultra.

The race was 30 miles starting from Glen Devon and finishing in Central Perth.

Bob Quin, David Burns, Jody Dempster and Laura Broatch all set off at 6 am, on the bus that was put on, from Perth to Glen Devon ready for the 8 am start. It was the first time this race had ever been ran.

Following the marked and well marshalled route from Glen Devon all 4 set off at a steady pace, soon tackling the first hill of many. The route followed core paths which took us over the Ochil hills. Lots of different types of terrain underfoot made a lot of the route quite challenging.

David and Laura supported each other throughout the race finishing in 6 hours 21 followed closely behind by Jody in 6 hours 29. Bob finished in a time of 7 hours 2 minutes.
