Gypsy Glen Hill Race Report 2018

The annual Gypsy Glen Hill Race took place in Peebles on Wednesday night 16 th May, organised by the Moorfoot Runners in association with Peebles & District Community Council.

Many thanks to the main organiser Mike Pearson and the support from all those helping with registration, marshalling and setting the course, whose efforts allow this successful event to go ahead.

There was a good turn of 76 runners on a lovely warm evening. The race was won by James Dunn from the Hunters Bog Trotters who was completing a quick-fire Peebles double after winning the 3 Bridges handicap race on Sunday. He covered the 8km course which includes 300m climb and descent in 31:15. Jonny Lawson of Portobello was 2nd and first over 40. The first home from the host club was Andy Cox in 5th (34:40) closely followed by Darin Dougal in 6th (34:54) who was also the second veteran. Local runner Scott MacDonald was the third veteran in 8 th place (36:18).

The female winner was Emily Nicholson from Pitreavie, a GB U20 in the hills in 2016 when only 17 but has been out for two years injured and this was her first competitive race back. Now 19, she is aiming for further GB Junior selection this summer.

It was a close race for the female veteran prize between three locals. Evergreen Susan Ridley (Edinburgh AC) won in 40:34, just ahead of Kate Jenkins (Gala Harriers) 40:49 and Lucy Colquhoun (Moorfoot Runners) 41:17.

The host Moorfoot Runners was also represented by Michael McGovern (12 th, 36:42), Sam McNeil (13th, 36:47), Colin Williams (19th, 37:34), Craig Walling (23rd, 38:55), Kenneth Davidson (25th, 39:00), Alan Elder (45th, 43:41).
