North Berwick Road Race Report

North Berwick Road Race report from  Iain Macdonald: Having grown up in Gullane I had always known of the Edinburgh to North Berwick race.  So this year the thought got into my head that it would be fun to give the 20 mile race a try, especially as my plan to get quicker hadn’t materialised.…
