The previously named 'Ian Hodgson' Mountain Relay and now named Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay is an annual adventure for #caacthletes. Taking place on Sunday 2 October 2016 this year.
It is a challenging hill race for 4 pairs in the Lake District. With the adventure being added to by travelling down on the Saturday afternoon, relaxing in the Barn End bar then camping under the stars at the Brotherswater campsite.
Congratulations to Orla Joyce, Jamie Thomson, Mhairi Arnott, Jamie McAslan, Katy Coats, Sam Cavens, Heidi Ross, Jamie Arnott, Caitlin Arnott, Findlay Donegan, Claire Sloan, Scott Hamilton, Janet Grigor and Keith Ovenstone. They are your 2016 Track & Field club champions!
The club championships took place on Saturday morning in great weather, 67 #caacthletes across all age groups toed the start lines and made marks in the sand.
Many times I have run a new race and declared thats its the "best race ever !!". The current winner of the award is the Muckle Toon Trail Half Marathon. 4 CAAC's headed down the A7 to Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway to take part. The race is a trail run, starting from the town then through some of the most beautiful border scenery. Its wasn't all fun and included lots of very challenging climbing and descending (included the 25% Kirk wynd climb within the first mile !!!).
For those few not keen to enter and run the race :-) it would be great if some would be prepared to help with organisation and marshalling. 4-5 marshals are need to head out on the hill to cover various checkpoints, and another possibly 4-5 are need to help with declarations at the start and timekeeping at the start/end.
