Scottish Masters Athlete of the Year Charlotte Morgan was back in action last weekend – with the World Long Distance Hill Champion in fine form

Charlotte raced at the gruelling Barbudo Trail race in Spain over 32K with 2,500m climb and  landed a fine second place finish in the Women’s race behind Dutch athlete Ragna Debats. Debats was the World Trail champion in Spain earlier this year over 50 miles.

The results confirm Carnethy Hill Runner Charlotte was placed seventh overall in 3.46.56.

Charlotte received her Masters Athlete of the Year Award from Angela Mudge at the FPSG Awards last month, after also being short-listed for FPSG Athlete of the Year.

With thanks to Adrian Stott
