Beinn Ratha Hill Race Results

Well done to the 25 runners who completed the Beinn Ratha race on Saturday on a bright, but very windy day. You can find the results here. The race was sponsored by John O’Groats Brewery with all runners and volunteers going home with one of their excellent beers and the first female and male and master female and male winning a gift pack.

First male was Alistair Macdonald from University of St Andrews and first female was Shoana Blackwood.

Many thanks to Leslie Mackay to Beinn Ratha organiser and all the volunteers.

January brought the arrival of winter but that didn’t deter the dedicated NHH trail runners, first up was Beach and Bark on 13 January and then the Reay Classic on 27 January. You can find the results for the Beach and Bark here and the Reay Classic here.

Many thanks to the trail organisers Alistair Geddes and Dave Spencer, and everyone else who helped out.
