Moorfoots handicap Sunday 30 Jan - now Walkerburn

A change of plan this weekend – there is an MTB enduro from the carpark in Inners and parts of the planned handicap route will be occupied by speeding runners and bikers! so I am moving the course to Walkerburn, with a loop in Glenbenna

The new course is a little longer with a bit more climb 6.2 Miles / 10km, 1,500ft / 450m ascent

Parking just north of the bridge in Walkerburn on Caberston Road

here: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=55.622314,-3.017356&num=1&t=h&sll=55.623162,-3.018022&sspn=0.002617,0.014613&hl=en-GB&ie=UTF8&ll=55.622896,-3.017646&spn=0.002617,0.014613&z=17

Start and Finish here at entrance of Glenbenna, about 1km from parking.

From carpark go south over bridge, turn east at junction until you reach the green Forestry Commission Glenbenna sign

Handicap start times to follow in a day or so. First off at 10am.

The plan is to go for tea and cake after in the new cafe which opened a few months on the main road.

Sorry for the late change.

Cheers, Colin
