Dunbartonshire Cross Country Championships

It was unfortunate that the day the first snow of the winter fell was the day I had chosen for my first cross country of the year. The Dunbartonshire championships were once again held at Maryhill Park but it was my first run around this fairly uninspiring venue. Having taken it easy since the Kielder Marathon this was always going to be hard work for me and the snow lying on the ground added to the challenge. However, I felt it was a good hard workout and I am not sure the snow made that much difference to times. Results will follow.

Next Saturday is the West of Scotland Champs at Irvine.


  1. snow is better than mud unless it's 6 feet deep, then you are in trouble :]

  2. The snow wasn't too bad yesterday but far too much overnight to get out running this morning. By all accounts this course was very muddy last year and so the snow may have been an improvement - I was still too slow though!
