A perfect day for the first race in the Borders xc at Lauder, a great turnout from the Harriers, please look at the photos to see who was there though as too long a list to type. Lauder is a fantastic xc course taking you up and along the Southern Upland Way and back through a lovely valley before you get to the mudslide of a climb into the final fields before the home straight.
Obligatory wash in the stream afterwards, helps get rid of the lactic acid so actually very necessary – thanks Kevin!
Wonderful shouts from Gill’s boys who even had a banner that they’d made (wow!) just as you got into the field which certainly helped me get to the finish.
