Fife AC members made a second return to the country at Rumgally/Kemback Bridge.

Limited entry numbers with staggered starts and social distancing combined to deliver a testing course around the edge of ploughed fields ranging from one lap to four laps.

Running in the opposite direction from two weeks ago the course took the runners alongside the River Eden by Dairsie House followed by a long gradual climb to Rumgally and the finish above Kemback Bridge.
