Goatfell Hill Race record smashed

The annual Goatfell Race last Saturday was one for the record books.

More than 232 runners took part in the event which saw the 23-year-old record time of 1 hour, 13 minutes and 40 seconds beaten by the first two runners.

Cutting a full minute off the time, Murray Strain of Hunters Bog Trotters completed the 15.5 kilometre route with 870 metres of ascent in 1 hour, 12 minutes and 11 seconds.

Finlay Wild of Lochaber, race winner in 2013, 2014 and 2015, finished second in 1 hour, 13 minutes and 35 seconds, which also beat the previous course record. The first female to cross the line was Holly Page with a time of 1 hour, 29 minutes and 36 seconds.
