Gala XC report

It was the second round of the Borders XC circuit today in Galashiels today. Chilly and foggy and very heavy underfoot but still lots of fun. A very strong turn out again and a very competitive field. For example the race was won in almost a identical time to last year and I recorded an almost identical time to last year but this year I came 30th whereas last year I was 18th, so it gives you sort of idea of the strength in depth. The race was run by Hector Haines (who recently beat the Jura hill race record that stood for 25 years!) in 21.42.

Kobe Stevens was the first Moorfoot home in a very credible 9th position for what I think is his first race in the senior cross country events. Results below and in full on the Borders XC website:

A photo of the first 7 Moorfoots to finish below (sorry we didn't get a photo of the whole Moorfoot contingent racing but it was a pretty chilly day to be standing around for long in just a vest).
