When Torridon and Kinlochewe Mountain Rescue Team deployed to the top of Beinn Eight the clag was still down.  However for the blue shirt competitors the weather was to lift and the ridge became clear affording them the spectacular views of the surrounding mountain.  As ever the early runners passed me at the back of Latch fully focussed on the remaining 13-15 km of competition.  For the rest of the high and low route competitors the evening was spent with those that at a myriad of stories to tell about what continues to bp a compelling, challenging but ultimately a totally mesmerising race.
