We got great weather for the last of the borders cross country season. There was snow on the ground but the weather was crisp and we even got a bit of sunshine. The course goes through the woods then out over the fields, then back through the woods with a couple of stream crossings. The most challenging part for me was the wooden walkways which were pretty slippery and I felt like I was going to career off the side of one. After the race there was food at the ‘Focus Centre’ and we all got a medal to cherish. 🙂

      Great work cross country harriers! Fantastic to see some junior harriers running too- well done everyone.

      Some great photographs in the report showing lovely sunny snowy conditions, much better weather than yesterday’s Carnethy 5 conditions. Galashiels was one of my favourite Borders XC courses and I remember well finishing some years ago to a chorus of “Happy Birthday” rendered by lots of Harriers. Happy days!
      Well done to all of you who completed the series and got your medals; and special well done’s (if there’s such a word) to Holly Dawson, 5th F8-9; Lewis Cairns, 5th M8: Michael Greens, 5th MJ; Gillian Cairns, 5th F40; and Ian Forrest, 4th M60.
