Kielder Winter Trail 10M (By Dorien Kimenai)

On 7th January, a few Moorfooters crossed the borders and headed off to England to run the Kielder Winter Trail 10M. The organization should be applauded for this race as the route was beautiful and the runners were smiling all the way despite the very heavy rain. With the endearing Kielder Castle in our back we started the race. The first 6 miles included some effort with a big ascent, but the downhill was superb, and the last 4 miles were Scottish flat. Team Moorfoot did great as we all ended up in the top 5 of our age category! A special mention to Martin who came 1st in his age category 5 years ago and did it again this year – well done!

Results: Kielder Winter 10 Miles Race (

1st MV50 - Martin Holt

4th FV40 - Gillian Carr

4th FS - Kerry Law

5th MV60 - Tim Warner

2nd FS - Dorien Kimenai

We warmed up again in the car on our way back with dry socks, heated seats (sorry Kerry and Gillian, next time you can sit in the front!) and with the lovely Sun that came out. The Moorfoot team couldn’t resist a stop at the Three Hills in Selkirk for coffee and cake. It was another great day out and a race I would love to do again and definitely recommend!
