SHR Scottish Hill Running Championship after Dollar
Jul 02, 2014
With the Dollar being a combined British, SHR and SAL Championship race there was a big and very high quality field, with lots of people taking the chance of ticking off another race towards their championship completion.

Interestingly in both the men’s and the women’s veteran classes, each age categories has someone who has won both races so far (apart from men’s over 70), while the Senior category is much more open for both men and women and a lot depends on who among the front runners does enough of the races. The latest listings can be accessed via the Championship menu to the right but are also linked from here:

Lairig Ghru 29th June 2014: Update
Jun 19, 2014

There has been a record entry for the Lairig Ghru hill race this year. The race limit, agreed with the 2 estates, was reached in 6 days. This resulted in a waiting list of over 80 and despite the fact that places have been offered to those on the waiting list as cancellations have been received, the list has remained high. Deeside Runners, who organise the race, would like to remind people that there will be strictly no entries on the day - as was stated on their website when the race opened for entries.
