Borders XC - Peebles Leg

After much discussion and numerous 'pitch inspections', we have a course which we believe will be runnable in the current mid-winter conditions.

Registration will be at the Peebles RFC Pavillion in Haylodge Park from 1000 onwards.
To speed up the regitsation process, please download and complete the entry form beforehand and have the exact money fo your entry.

Juniors will run on a modified course within the park - race start 1130

Seniors will run on a modified course on the south side of the river - race start 1200 (after the junior race)
Note that there is a short walk from the park to the start of the senior course (approx 10 mins walk from registration)

Please use the car parking at Haylodge Park (off the Glasgow road near the new Kingsland School)

Marshalls should meet at the Fotheringham Bridge in Haylodge Park at 1100 - make sure you have done any race registration before hand.
It will be extremely cold, so please dress appropriately....

Note to Juniors and Parents/Carers/Guardians:
As things stand a modified junior course in Hay Lodge park (2 laps of just under 1km each) is runnable but entrants should be aware that there is 1 inch of powdery snow on the course and suitable footwear - spikes, studs or trail shoes – is strongly advised. The usual steep hill has been taken out but runners who wear road-style training shoes without a good tread are likely to be disadvantaged, although no more so than in muddy conditions.”
