Moorfoots in action at Three Bridges Race

Pic - Kenny huffing and puffing to the finish
The sun shone on Peebles for this year's Three Bridges Race, and the crowds came out in force to cheer on their local heros.

Six Moorfoots took part in the Open Handicap, with Mike McGovern leading the club home in 17'45" off a 4min + handicap (and taking 30secs off his time from the previous year) for seventh place. Better luck next year for your twenty first attempt at this race...!!!

Alex and Paul battled it out throughout the race, and despite his recent Lochaber Marathon still in his legs. Paul battled through to take the honours.

New member Scott (from South Aaffrriccaa) suffered in the handicaping department from his previous sub 30' 10K PB time, but ran strongly in his "Moofoot colour theme" shoes. (see pic below)

Newly returning Moorfoot member Tom McNaughton won the Open Handicap race.

Thanks also to all those who came along to support and cheer on the Moorfoot Runners.

More pictures and times as they become available....
