Eildon 2 Hills on Saturday 21st June 1986

Highlights of this race (A British Championship Race in 1986) for me were
an enjoyable and interesting drive up from the Lakes, through the gentle hills of the Lowlands, woollen mill country, until eventually the dramatic twin peaks of Eildon came into view
a warm-up spent sussing out the notorious bottleneck of the steps (after a road route through the centre of Melrose, the runners have to descend a narrow flight of steps and then climb through a narrow strip of woodland before emerging, over a stile, onto the open hillside)
the race itself, jostling on the road for a good position on the steps, busting a gut on the steep climb to the North Summit, trying to recover slightly on the descent to the col before climbing to the South Summit, agonising over the route choice off this summit and making the wrong choice thereby losing vital seconds after a rough descent through the heather, lungs bursting as 1 try in vain to make up the lost ground, eventually giving up the chase and easing off to hold on to my position .....the welcome pint of local ale immediately afterwards
