Great new race for 2015 organised by the "Melrose races" team (10.5 miles , 540m) . Really varied course with a proper hill run to start (up the 3 Eildons), scenic trail running through woodlands & fields, a long stretch on the banks of the Tweed and an odd bit of road thrown in (which I did not appreciate).
There were seven Moorfoot entries from the field of 100 runners (capped). There looks to have been a good tussle between the Moorfoot top guns - Andy appears to be paying the price for too many exotic winter holidays allowing the old boys to beat him to the line,
Wull Hynd - 1:19:47 (3rd place)
Darin Dougal - 1:20:03 (4th place)
Andrew Cox - 1:20:37 (5th place).
We need to lobby for team prize next year !!
Eddie Balfour - 1:30 (19th place)
Alan Elder - 1:39 (37th place)
DNF (Mike McGovern - pulled up with calf injury whilst in pole position)
DNS (Tom Hobbs - child minding duties)
