The weather was kind and there was a good turn out from the Moorfoots and the Innerleithen Runners & Riders and friends for the festive handicap. Some nice views were to be had if you had a moment to look up! Mince pies and blethering after made for an enjoyable morning.
Thank you to Russel for marshalling.
