The Long Climb

Hopetoun House, Fife, Scotland

Having completed a small 1km loop the runners turn their attention to the larger loops and at the end of this is a long steady climb out of a grassy bowl before they commence their second large lap for the full 5Km run.  By this stage there is an obvious stretching of the field and you can see the eventual winner (17) Sunny McGrath in the leading group.  Ben Cameron (55) is way back down the hill in around 16th place but clearly making progress through the field.
