Barrathon 2014 - Results
This year, 241 runners completed the Barrathon. The clockwise route saw them running into the wind on the west side of Barra but this changed to a gentle push as they raced up Heaval on the east side.
Hunters Bog Trotter made off will a lot of the prizes this year. HBT's Ray Ward crossed the finishing line first in 1:18:28, with HBT's Eilis McKechanie coming in as the first female in 1:27:12. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team prizes went to 'HBT Had Better Times', 'HBT Hunky Barra Trio', and 'HBT Heb Three'.
First local was Kenny McIntosh in 1:46:22, and the first local female was Mary Catherine Macdougall in 1:52:12.
The Fun Run saw Alasdair Elder finish first again and match the course record that he set last year. The Junior Fun Run had two records broken: the number of runners and the course record. There were 65 runners with 15 of them under 5. The youngest were allowed a 'little' help from their mums and dads. Cameron Galbraith set a new course record shaving a couple of seconds off the previous record that had stood for 3 years.
