Down Hill Race Monday 28th Sept

Bad visibility and a chilly breeze greeted the runners gathering at Scotsman’s Stump for this years downhill race. Setting off at 30 second intervals to allow everyone the freedom to choose their own route the competitors were soon under way. On the descent from the mast the clag lifted to reveal the pike silhouetted by the setting sun. Some were obviously paying too much attention to this picturesque vista as they fell into a bog or on the descent from the pike. However, everyone made it back to the RMI club in one piece, and in the dark.

Thanks to Diane for the timekeeping, Doug for keeping us all honest by
marshalling at the Pike, Anne for the lift, and everyone who supported
the event.
