Having An Ogle

Glen OgleSaturday morning (5 November) saw nearly 400 runners set off under cold skies, for the sixth staging of BAM Racing's Glen Ogle 33 ultra marathon, and the last on the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series calendar. Starting in the picturesque village of Killin, the course undulates around 33 miles of stunning scenery, making good use of the old railway architecture, and crossing viaducts and bridges.

Neil Renault (Edinburgh AC) broke the course record to win the men's race in an incredible 3.29.53, followed home in a relatively distant second place by Craig Reid (3.50.09), with Nick Williamson in third (3.58.39).

The women's race was won by Garscube Harrier, Nicola Adams-Hendry (4.19.20) with Angela Reid in second (4.22.35 ) for her third podium in three races of her debut ultra marathon year. Joanna Murphy completed the top three in 4.22.37.

Carnegie Harrier Fiona Rennie, completing her 61st ultra, said: “I love the Glen Ogle, it's such a beautiful route.”
