Gallovidian 10k Race Report

Gallovidian 10k: 4th September 2013 by Alan Wallace  My affair with Scotland began when I was a young boy. I remember my father being knowledgeable in Scottish history.

Borrowdale Fell Race 2013

Another superb race report by club member Alan Wallace. I had been looking forward to this race for a while. 17 Miles of tough, high level Lakeland terrain with 6500ft of ascent.

High Cup Nick Fell Race: 23rd February 2013

Club member, Alan Wallace, reports from this year’s High Cup Nick Fell Race. I was hoping to do this race last year but it came too soon after injury so when I saw that it was this weekend and there was the possibility of a lift I jumped at the chance. The plan was to meet …
