Lochaber Athletics Club penultimate winter league race took place at the weekend.
Last Sunday, runners took to the new Cow Hill race route – five miles in length and climbing to the summit of Cow Hill through the peat track and the front of the hill.
Despite the heavy rainfall before the race, 42 runners took part. The first three places were hotly contested from the start with Luke Taylor and John Yells battling all the way to the line with Stephen Traill not far behind, with only one second between first and second.
