I am organising a Festive Handicap which will also be a counter for the winter club champs, but the aim is to be a bit of fun. First start at 10.15am on Sunday 20th Dec, starting near the Cuddy Bridge off Leithen Road here
The start will be just by the Cuddy Bridge. There will be a choice of routes:
A 2 ¼ miles / 3 ½ km suitable for juniors and those who simply fancy a shorter route (or those who had too much at the Christmas party) - the proposed route is shown below.
A longer route will be about 5 miles / 8km with a 300m climb, almost all in the first 2 miles (one of those surely it can't get steeper climb which then does!).
There is route is a mix of trail and forest road but it will be muddy and uneven in places - you will get wet feet!
Please let me know if you are planning to attend so I can try to work out handicaps. Also I could do with a marshal or two if you are not up for a run, but can get by without as long as you don't follow Mike McGovern.
Hope to see you there, but be aware if serious winter conditions occur then we may have to cancel.
Mince pies and refreshments in our conservatory after but it isn't heated so bring a warm coat!
