Well done to Bruce CROMBIE who took part in two fell races over the course of the weekend, performing superbly in both of them. On Saturday 3rd August Bruce was one of the 34 runners in the Powburn Show Hill Race. Last year Bruce was 4th in this 3.8 mile out and back course, however this year he went one place better finishing 3rd and winning the 1st local prize in the process. Bruce finished in 25.50, whilst Kim BRONZE was 29th in 38.10.
The following day Bruce competed in the Great Hetha Run, part of the Hethpool Show. For the 2nd year running Bruce won the event in 22.24, winning a bottle of his favourite tipple, sparkling wine.
