The 2014 TISO Carnethy Five Hill Race, won by Orlando Edwards (HBT)

It was a battle of past winners in the final stages of the gruelling 44th TISO Carnethy Five Hill Race on Saturday afternoon.

2012 winner Orlando Edwards held off the challenge from last year’s winner Finlay Wild to cross the line in 51 minutes 27 seconds.

The pair broke away from the pack, which contained 2011 winner Tom Owens (Shettleston) and 2010 winner Rob Jebb.

Hunter Bog Trotter athlete Edwards (38) told the Advertiser: “It was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. It was great fun running down the hills and the views from the top were stunning.”
