|Lucas and Andy near the top|
The race won by Lucas Cheskin in the time 26.42 for the 3 mile race which includes 1,200 brutal feet of climb and then foot burning descent. He led to the top (where Colin was marshalling) and held on the descent to win the trophy and £100 pize money!
Lucas was closely followed by Fergus Johnson of Gala and then our own Andy Cox 3rd (27.27) , with ex-Moorfoot (now Strathclyde Uni) and under 20 World Duathlon Champion Benjamin Hindley in 4th (27.49). Next Moorfoot home was David Cheskin with a very respectable 35.41.

Colin took part in the Round the Town race which is a handicap 1/2 mile race finishing along Innerleithen High Street. Craig did the handicapping and I was back marker and wasn't fast enough to catch the front runner in the half mile and finished 3rd behind Katie Swanson and the Standard Bearer! Still I covered the course in 4.34 mile pace so happy.
