This would make a great first hill race for anyone wanting to give hill racing a go as its quite short and well marked and marshalled.

This race is organised by Moorfoot Runners and registration is at Peebles High School. There is also a 3K junior race on the same day and we caught the end of it when we were waiting for ours to start. The race is at 2.30 so plenty of time to eat your lunch and let it go down before hand.
The route is a figure of eight and is quite runnable, although I did walk the last uphill of Cademuir hill as this was quite steep. The weather was sunny and quite warm and the views of the surrounding hills are just lovely when you reach the top of the hill. After this there is a nice downhill section, then a gentler uphill on the return journey followed by what I see as the rollercoaster section of undulating track back towards the finish.
