Andy Cox and Colin are organising a run at 10am on the morning of New Years Eve (31st Dec in case you are not sure!) as it falls on a Sunday this year. The run will be followed by mince pies and refreshments at Andy's house.

The run will be a low level long run to Loch Eddy in Glen Estate. It's almost 13 miles exactly from the meeting point outside No.1 CafĂ©, on the Innerleithen High Street at the junction of Traquair Road.  

The run will be about 70% on roads, 20% on hard track with about a 1 mile section of on soft ground. You will be OK to use road shoes but don't wear your racing flats! We expect the run to take up to 2.5hrs so plan accordingly. Depending on the spread of runners we can let the group split into two so all paces can be accommodated.

Glen Estate is a bit of gem and largely over looked. Here are some pics to give you a flavour:

Loch Eddy

Here is a the route from a run Andy and I did at the beginning of the year. Please note it shows 14 miles as I ran from my home, which adds a mile to the planned run.

Please let Colin know on a few days before at latest if you intend to come so we can get enough supplies.
