It’s an uphill struggle


IT WAS a true family challenge – mums, dads and children joined other runners for the annual Muckle Toon Joggers’ uphill run on Tuesday.
Starting at the bottom of the hill road, the runners took on the gruelling climb up to the cattle grid at the top, a distance of one mile.
Maintaining a good lead all the way, Martin Thomlinson reached the top first in 12.12 and took the male over 16 trophy.
In second place was Iona Jamieson in 13.09 and she won the female under 16 trophy.
The male under 16 winner was Thomas McCleary in 13.56 and the first female over 16 runner was Rhea Cavers in 15.36.
A total of 35 runners completed the challenge and they were rewarded with lots of cake at the finish. The trophies were presented by Liz Elliot.
