Bishop Hill race is a long standing and popular early season classic. It is a short but tough route over a mix of path and hill terrain that packs a lot in, and has one of the most 'fun' descents in the racing calendar.
Last year, the long standing course record was broken by Jamie Crowe, Central AC. So you will have to go some to beat that, but we will throw in an additional £50 (on top of normal generous prizes) if either of the male or female records are broken. There's an incentive, and for a fiver it's great value. So the Lomies hope to see you there for a wee bit of steep hill bashing.
If racing as an adult and you have a child, then we are also keen to maintain a gateway that encourages youngsters into the sport and give them an all too rare chance to race each other in the hills. The under 16 'Yoof' race is on a shorter course up to the gate and return. It starts at 1pm and costs £1 on the day. Be at the start for 12.30pm with an adult to give your name and get a number which will be written on your hand, sharpie style! No Entry Central sign up required for Juniors.
Full waterproof body cover, hat and gloves should be worn or carried for adults, as the weather can be absolutely anything on the day, and it is exposed and disorientating up top.
We will have our usual post race hospitality with soup and prizes all the way up to V60. Note the race is open to over 16s with an under 18 prize.
