Scottish Hill Races Data - 2000
The record times in 2000 for 77 Scottish long distance races. We believe the data are, for the most part, trustworthy. However, the
dist variable for Caerketton (record 58) seems to have been variously recorded as 1.5 mi and 2.5 mi.
This data frame contains the following columns:
distance, in miles (on the map)
total height gained during the route, in feet
record time in hours
record time in hours for females
a factor, with levels indicating type of race, i.e. hill, marathon, relay, uphill or other
