Balmoral Estate, what a location!

Mudge to challenge St James's Place Wealth Management trail race record - 5 March 2013

The former world mountain running champion will certainly add a touch of class to the women's division of the race and she'll undoubtedly be a main contender to pick up the big cash bonus being offered if the course record falls. 

Mudge is without doubt a formidable competitor. She won the world mountain running trophy in Germany in 2000 then went on to lead Scotland to team gold in the 2003 championships in Alaska where she finished third.

Mudge has also been been silver medallist in the European mountain running trophy on three occasions.

Now aged 42, the Carnethy team member is still a top class athlete. She was runner-up in the world long distance trail running championships in France in 2009 and second in the Commonwealth trail championships at Anglesey, Wales in 2011.

Last year she was first in her age group and seventh overall in the world long distance mountain running championships at Interlaken in Switzerland.

Angela showed her fine current form by winning last month's Carnethy hill race for the 14th time.

Mudge's Balmoral opposition will include  trail race title holder Morgan Windram-Geddes (Fife AC) and a number of other top runners including two previous winners of the Stena Drilling 10K, Carolyn Milne (2012) and Megan Crawford (2011).

It seems certain that Morgan's course record of 1hr 37min 46secs will be put under severe pressure, and if it falls, the person breaking it will pocket a bonus prize of £150 on top of the £150 for winning the race.

Entries are still available for the trail race, but don't delay, they are being snapped up fast.
