Dollar Hill Race 2017

I wasn't the only Lomie at this race, bumped into David Osbourne and 2 other guys, one keeps meaning to join the club and the other is already a Lomie but never met him! (sorry forgot their names)! ......About 82 of us gathered for this epic steep race..which included a large group of males and females from France..along ... More

Eildon 3 Hill Race 2017

Only Lomie at this Race....😕..arrived with 10 minutes to spare, a quick loo stop and pick up my number, and we were off!..This was a steep climb from the off..😝...and when I reached the summit of the first hill, the wind nearly blew me off the top..after that it was an undulating trail run around the other ...

The East Lom Yomp 23rd Feb 2016

To the west lay the hazards of sheep rustling; to the east the death run to Falkland hill. Choose death said our leader G*****.   All was good at first with the trot through the trees but somewhere in the depths of Maspie my legs started to complain.  Luckily there were others even less fit - and younger and don't think ...

No time to rest

As the saying goes 'when the going gets tough the tough get going' and if you want to see improvement for the next season then you need to rack up those winter miles.   More

Cleish Hill 5th April 2016

An elite Lomie squad gathered on 5th April 2015 for some hard training - but not at the Cleish! Runmaster Gordie had to make do with Al, DaveT, IanB, IanE and Deek. He led us off on the usual route over the Innians (at least the watchman thought we were fast!) We braved the trees, followed Gordie who was following Jack and ... More

Scotlandwell 29th March 2016

No winter blasts to spoil our first summer foray  this year. We were unled by a circuitous route to the crags. Feeling a bit fragile, Al made his way slowly to White Craig and waited until the Lomie rentamob popped out from the Golf ball. After a blether and photies, Gordon led off for the Bishop. Back at the Inn we ... More

‘Perth Posse Invitation’ 8th March 2016

They say a change is as good as rest.  I changed but then there was no rest.  We chuntered up the bonny wee Buckie glen from the Cherrybank Inn towards the motorway.  Not actually running up the central reservation but it felt a bit like it until we crossed a footbridge and escaped into wild woods and then bonny hill ...

Scarf 1st March 2016

No room at the inn for us at Falkland so we decamped along to the Pillars car park. We eventually got under way but soon there were mutterings of 'what about East Lom'. Gordie led the breakaway while Alan led his merry band through the mud and up to the monument. The Maidens (not Carole and Joan!) beckoned and it was good ... More
