Three Harriers made it along to Philiphaugh this year – me, Des and Stuart. This is a great race organised by Sheila Cochrane and the Selkirk Fund Runners, and in its 8th year. It sets off from close to Selkirk Rugby Club. There is a choice of a 4 mile route (suitable for kids too) and our 7 mile route. It’s mostly runnable, even on the uphill, which makes it feel tough (certainly for those of us who like a little bit of uphill walking to vary the pace ;-)). There is really no navigation required and it is quite maneagable for anyone who also enjoys a trail race but with some hill thrown in.
Great food at the finish, well organised and marshalled by some lovely folk. Great placing for Des and Stuart, 4th and 7th.
Hope to be back again next year!
