    For those wanting to either play along with today's challenge or set their own score ahead of time, today we're running the following:

    Cathcart Circle, September, light rain. Class 314.
    TPWS and AWS enabled.

    2I29 17:15 service out of Glasgow Central

    Victory is decided on score only however pyrrhic victories may be claimed from the furthest distance travelled on foot, first to arrive at the destination and most glamorous camera work along the way.

    I was on target for around that before, y'know, something predictable.

    I very nearly did what you did but realised at the last moment that the signals are not on that side.

    There are 3 signals in that area - one on the other track (I knew it wasn't that one). Then there are two on your track, and the second one was also red - that's the one I was watching instead of the HUD. Serves me right for trying to read the track...

    Got a decent (if I say so myself) 12,189.
    Walked 533.89yds and didn't SPAD :D

    Question is; are we allowed a second chance?
    And a couple of nice pictures of the run: 34c38e0f-59b3-4fbc-97c2-ef221a586af5.jpeg 4442a076-6e61-49fb-9e2a-f0324057dd74.jpeg 46f7569b-0348-4034-8f2b-c33ce4535a9c.jpeg

    Score 11924 - I ran HUD free most of the way and this hurt me a little with the speeds so I lost some points not anticipating the speed signs. The signal is very confusing as its on the other side of a wall and you would not expect it to apply to you but it does!

    You can watch the run at
