Queens Drive 5K 2011

The Queens Drive 5K Road Race is organised by Edinburgh Athletic Club. The route comprises a clockwise loop of Arthur’s Seat using Queens Drive and as such incorporates one significant climb and a long downhill section towards the finish. After the cancellation last year (snow), it was good to see this end-of-year race taking place again. Registration was at Pollock Halls (including entry-on-the-day) from 1200 and a fast field were started by Barry-the-gun at 1300. This year ERN’s Joelle Lacouture took part, coming a very credible 7th woman and 4th in category. Murdo helped marshal and Mike came along and took the race photos. Thanks to EAC for a lovely, no-fuss challenge but well organised event.
