This years The Down'N'Up takes place this Saturday at 9am. As usual i imagine there will be some sore heads, but as usual im sure all will be raring to go. Mr.Anderson of O'Brien Anderson & Co. completed a Health and Safety Inspection at 11am yesterday, he reported it is unsafe, dodgey and generaly not recommendable thus we will continue with the event as normal.

Last year Tom Ferrington took the overall title and won a Xmas Cactus, which he recently reported was in fine fettle blossoming as the snow started to fall two weeks ago. Ferrington's winning time was 19s outside the course record from 2007 held by Keith Hood, however both of these fine athletes have recently had some injury and ilness to contend with so the door is quite possible open for a return to victory for 2008 winner Scott Pilkington. I have a sneaky feeling we could see some magic from one of the descenders this year Alex Cumming and Steven O'Brien definitely will impress on the first leg but it would be folly to exclude Nick Brown and Susan Johnston who have completed recces in the dark in the past weeks. Such dedication will undoubtedly pay dividends. [ Previous Results ]
