Update 10-March - good conditions on the JBW from run today - ground has dried out well despite recent snow showers; more snow flurries forecast for next weekend so full body cover inc hats and gloves strongly recommended
Our annual Club running of the John Buchan Way - Broughton to Peebles ~13 miles - on Sunday 17-March
Usual logistics, but a quick recap...
Meet at Gytes Leisure Centre Peebles at 0915 for prompt departure
Divy up into cars and head up to Broughton Place for start of run (plan to be running by 1000)
Run usually takes ~2 hrs (10 min mile pace inc stops) - we will try and run as a group, with regular regrouping at suitable landmarks.
Probably advise bringing a snack, it's a trail shoe footwear choice and full body cover - there will be stops, and particularly for faster runners, you will be running much below race pace, so don't get cold !
Kirsty will lay on some sandwiches and soup/tea/coffee back at 52 Edderston Road for the finish, so plan this into your morning 'pass-out'
All going to plan, back in Peebles ~1200, and soup/sarnies consumed by 1300
Please get in touch to let me know numbers and whether you can take your car if needed.
(Those taking cars, remember we need to sort out getting you back to Broughton to collect them again...)
Anyone who fancies doing a half-Buchan (starting at Stobo and running back over the JBW), let me know and we can organise something....
And if anyone just fancies the soup/sarnies, you are also very welcome - arrive at ~1200
