The Highland Cross
I'd heard that the Highland Cross is quite hard to get into but it seems like everyone from the club was doing it this year. I'll have to learn the secret handshake so I can secure an entry in a future event!
The event runs from Kintail on the West Coast through Glen Affric and Strathglass and finally finishing 50 miles later on the East Coast in Beauly. The first 20 miles is quite a challenging off road run with the final 30 miles on the bike (on road). The event raises huge amounts of money for local charities which is great!
Well done too all club members who took part including Martin, Darren, Mark, Neil, Matt, Angus and George. Well done to Martin, a.k.a. Flash Gordon, who managed to get in under 4 hours. As for George, I can never keep track of how many events he's done - he's like a swim, bike, run ninja! You'll never know he's doing an event but if you look on pretty much any event results or photos, George's name or cheery face will appear!
