Distance 4.8 km
Climb 350 m
This is a short and sweet race. As part of the St. Ronan’s Border Games there are lots of sprint races going on at the same time in Victoria park where the race starts and finishes. There is a great atmosphere and plenty of ice-cream on sale for after the race. I have taken part in this event before but still managed to miss the markers coming back down and ran too far along the hill so that when I did descend I had missed the path and had to make a very undignified gallop through the ferns. It was none the less very enjoyable and I will be back next year. Maybe we could put it in the hill grand prix as it is only 1 pound to enter and its a lovely drive down to Innerleithen.
