John Hewitt, 3:57:32
A note from John: “Very pleased to have completed 2015 Scottish Championships: Birnam (short), Slioch (long), Durisdeer (medium) and Two Inns (long) on Saturday. It was a great A to B route from the coast to Glen Coe via several hills – very rough ground with not a lot of path but some tremendous views. As I’m not Scottish by birth, residence or club I won’t get an official classification but, as a member of Scottish Hill Runners, I should receive a mug!”
