IT WAS another successful year for the Dollar Hill Race last weekend, with more than 80 runners taking on the tough course around the Wee County's hills.

Organised by the Ochil Hill Runners, the event saw competitors climb around 3,000ft as they dashed around the nine-mile route.

Starting and finishing at Dollar Academy, runners set off through Dollar Glen then over Saddle Hill, Tarmangie Hill, around to King's Seat Hill then back to the Academy.

The first runner back for the men was Ben Hukins, of Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers, who finished in a time of 01:20.52.

First for the female competitors was Veronique Oldham, of Cosmic Hillbashers, whose finishing time was 01:41.26.

Alex King, from the Ochil Hill Runners, told the advertiser more about how the event went.

He said: "It was good, we didn't have any issues and everyone found their way around the course so we didn't have to go looking for people.

"It was dry and quite sunny actually, so I think the conditions were good because it was nice and dry underfoot – and it can be quite boggy out there."

On behalf of the club, he also thanked Dollar Academy for their generosity in allowing competitors to use their facilities free of charge during the event.

The Dollar Hill Race has been running since the 1990s, and was originally organised by the local academy.
