Greenmantle Dash 2023 (Gillian Carr)


A cracking start to the new year!

After a break of a few years the Greenmantle Dash was back with vengeance. Now hosted by the Penicuik Harriers the short dash up the front face of Trahenna on a glorious sunny day, drew over 100 runners from the south and beyond.

A few Moorfoot Runners made their way along to Broughton, including Heather & Dorien who cycled there, warming up on this frosty morning, and racking up a few extra miles for Doddie Aid.

The race is only 2 miles long, but full of challenges! Starting at Broughton Brewery, first you have to loup over a wall, wade across the river (which wasn’t as bad as a couple of days ago) but still knee deep! Plod through a muddy bog and then slog up to the top of the hill! Beautiful views and you were certainly warm by the time you got to the top! Then it was a case of trying to stay on your feet on the steep slippy down hill, back through the muddy field and then a flat sprint along the road to the village hall.

Everyone had well earned their soup & Broughton Ale!


A really friendly event, well organised by Penicuik Harriers, encouraging Marshalls and great kitchen helpers

Some great prizes as well - a box of organic veg & eggs for the winners from each age category!
