Carradale Canter runners sweltered in near 30ºC heat and many cooled off in the sea.

There was a festival atmosphere on the quay last Sunday in the best conditions in the race’s four years.

The Carradale Harbour Enterprises Ltd’s concrete slip, completed in 2015,  allowed runners to easily walk into the sheltered cooling waters.

A week before the race, following Courier publicity about the switch to compostable cups for the feeding stations, entries jumped by 25 per cent to give a potential field of about 100 entries.
