Just received a message from Scott McTaggart, after he completed the World Mountain Running Championship, held in New Zealand today. - "Hi, just finished the hardest race of my life. Came in 28th, Was in 24th but twisted my ankle with 400m to go. Came in first Aussie. Thanks for your support"


  1. Great effort by Scott !

    So close yet so far, still, to be first Ozzie home is a great achievement in itself !

    Well done mate and all the best for the rest of the year !

  2. Scott was 28th, Stephen Brown was 40th,David Osmond 75th, Vivian Pott 11th, Jackie Fairweather 12th, Emma Murray 34th, Marnie Ponton 35th.

    Tough course by the look of some of the photos on the website.

  3. Good on you Scotty! A very guttsy effort. I can imagine how you would have suffered after being 3rd after the first climb. Go the steeplechasers!
