Pic - cool shades Mike !
Yes, it's that time of year again, and it's time to start deciding if you are doing the local Traquair to Broughton Two Breweries Hill Race (Sat 25th September), known more simply as 'the Breweries' (29Km, 1500m ascent)
Entries and more details here
In preparation for this event, some of the Sunday runs in August will take on more of a 'hill' content, with slightly longer duration (~2 hours) - watch the training dates section on the blogger for details.
First scheduled longer Sunday run will be 22-Aug taking in some of the Southern Upland Way (Walkerburn to Three Brethren & back ?) and the annual Breweries Recces (Part 1, Innerleithen to Glenrath; Part 2 Glenrath to Broughton) will be scheduled soon....
...oh, almost forgot, all finishers get a bottle of Broughton Ale and the soup/sandwiches/cake/coffee spread at the end is amongst the best of the running year !
