Club Champs Update No 8 - Wednesday


The main action of the last week has been at two events:

At the Lairig Ghru Race on Sunday Andy Cox, Dorien Kimenai and Heather Young all completed this classic Cairngorm route in excellent conditions. At fractionally over marathon distance they all picked up 20 bonus points.

Last night the Earlston Black Hill Race had a very strong Moorfoot representation making up over 20% of the field. The dozen strong contingent comprising David Carter-Brown, Carol Moss (2nd Female), Alex Campbell (3rd Female), Mike Goddard, Coreen McGovern, Jen Misak, Neil Jackson, Vicky Morrison, Ian Munro, Sarah Burthe, Andrew Fish & Scott Gourlay. Bonus podium points to Carol and Alex for 2nd and 3rd Female respectively. I am not seeing any age category classifications for this modest sized field but if anyone can evidence results with these on we can re-evaluate bonus podium points! ;-)

So the position at the top of the table is Gillian still in the lead with Jen in 2nd and Carol in 3rd, with all 3 reaching the Champs Medal Threshold. It is then very tight with just 20 points separating 4th to 11th place.

Next up we have the Moffat Gale Race next Tuesday and the Kelso 10k on Saturday 13th July. Both cracking events.

Also worth flagging that as yet no one has claimed any "Team Player" points for a Moorfoot Relay Team. So, just a wee plug for Run The Borders should anyone fancy pulling together a team to do the Borders Abbey Way on 24th August as a relay team?
