Peebles XC Race Report

A very well marked and marshalled course! The warm conditions (relatively speaking) made for a pleasant race today. Due to reseeding of the pitch at Haylodge meant that there the re-routed first lap of the park may have been shorter but it was certainly sharper! The extra detour round the pond before you started the ascent of the Sware meant there was nowhere to take it easy in the 2013 edition.

Again some very good results from Moorfoot Runners on the senior course (I didn't arrive in time to see the Juniors in action).

The race was again won by ex Moorfott Mike Reid in 26.08. Darin Dougal was the first Moorfoot home in 5th in 27.42 (2nd M40) in a real tussle with 'big' Fergus from Gala, Lucas Cheskin was 1st Junior and 9th overall in 28.46, Mike McGovern 13th, 29.21 (4th M40), Colin Williams 14th, 29.30, Carol Moss maintain her excellent performances finishing 5th woman overall and 3rd F40 in 33.22, Ian Munro 12th M50 34.44 and Lucy Husband 17th F40 in 42.09.
