Race conditions

Cool to start with and a strong, prevailing headwind until 18 miles. This became a tail wind for the return trip to the finish

Report

Never the fastest course because of the strong winds along the coast, this year's race had conditions as good as can be expected and a lot more Serpies than in previous years. Due to tram track road works the start was further out the centre than before and only the first few miles were in Edinburgh. It then follows the coast with sporadic support. But the support is enthusiastic and the atmosphere is enhanced by the Hairy Haggis 4-Stage Relay which is run in tandem.

It's a relief to turn at 18 miles and have the wind helping for the remaining miles. It's also fun to see the runners coming from the other direction with both sides shouting encouragement to each other.
