Stornoway Running and Athletics Club
The first Wacky race of the 2017/18 series took place on Thursday, there was a fantastic turnout of 38 runners! Well done to all who took part there was lots excellent running and a great atmosphere. Thanks personally (from me Norm) to Howie for dragging me round, my body is still busted and felt like I was carrying a beer baby round the route.
Big congrats to Angie Veg Murray for winning the 2016/17 series, thus continuing the Angus Murray reign. Following on from Angus Museum Murray’s last two series wins. Its was a tight battle last year with Charlie Horton and Shirly Pearson coming a very close second equal!
Also a big thanks to Angie and wee Scott for doing the timing, and Spike and Peter for organising and sorting out results.
A couple of notes – Ross and Amy’s handicaps were calculated incorrectly so their positions have been adjusted using the proper handicap for the points. Also a special mention to Brenda and Lewis who ended up with particularly tough handicaps, this will be adjusted in the next race.
Wacky race 2 will be on Thursday 30th November, see you there!
