he ruins the surprise

Bad. At least, according to a more experienced soul we get speaking to at the start line who looks like he’s been dressed Nike Air Max Classic BW Heren by a five-year-old, in his half running-half-hunting ensemble worn for the event’s “Do it in tweed!” theme. “It’s the second mountain that really breaks you,” he elaborates. Second mountain? I wasn’t even aware of a first. “Oh, and it’s not 10K,” he ruins the surprise. “More like 15K.” The news doesn’t go down well with Grace. “Sssh – it’s only five kilometres more,” I soothe. “That’ll be like an extra 20 minutes”.

Appeased, we enthusiastically set off in our earmarked wave – one of three whooping groups making up the event’s 3,000 competitors – into the Scottish wilderness. The first obstacle – hay bales – is a breeze; the second – the kind of thick mud which will take any loose Nike Air Vapormax Womens trainer prisoner – prompts a few slips and squeals, but doesn’t deter. An icy river crossing numbs our feet, but does, as Grace points out, at least Nike Air Pegasus 83 Womens clean off the mud.

Then we reach the first “mountain”. Leading through a pine wood, the path is narrow and steep, meaning speed becomes dependent on the person in front. Still, the mood is merry and, with the sun rapidly setting, the views are stunning. We push to the top feeling rather smug to be smashing such a “hard” race.Grace doesn’t like the downhill parts. I know, because she’s informed me about 58 times on the descent of Mount One. It is practically vertical, to be fair. Plus, the soil only seems to come in either dry and loose, or wet and slippery, and it’s now pitch-black. We’re about an hour and a half into the event when we eventually stumble through some bushes and back onto the road we started on, prompting a round of celebratory high-fives: one mountain down, one to go – right? Wrong. “You’re almost halfway,”Nike Air Max 87 Heren a volunteer advises cheerfully. “You’ve still got the river – and that – to go.” he adds, pointing to what I think is fair to call the Scottish Nike Air Max 90 Dames equivalent of Mount Everest. We’re devastated.

It’s an incredible sight, at least. Like something out of a sci-fi film, the headlamps of the thousands of competitors already climbing form a huge, white ring on the surface that looks eerily like something Steven Spielberg would use to contact intergalactic species. The lack of light pollution means that the stars in the night sky make a simply glorious backdrop. But first we have to get across the worst obstacle of them all: the river. With the temperature now easily below freezing, the last thing I want is an icy dip. So, of course, I spectacularly come crashing down – not only leaving me soaked through, but also rewarding me with a Nike Free 3.0 V4 Dames deep gash in my knee. Ouch.
