Hill Race race 49:03  4.4 mi (11:09 / mi)
Tinto Hill Race (4.4 miles, 1500 feet climb) in 49:03. Chilly but sunny with perfect visibility and little wind (i.e. pretty ideal conditions). Steady climb with a bit more walking than expected (33:44 to top) then brisk descent (15:19). Thomas 37:12 despite unscheduled extra distance through the heather following the leader (Murray Strain) round the junior course loop. Emma 45:45. Battled on the descent with a woman who overtook me right at the end only to turn round in the finish funnel to reveal that she was heavily pregnant!
