Lauder Cross-Country

A wee message from Graeme Sutherland
 
Please pass the following info on to your club.
 
The Leisure Centre in Lauder will be open for 10.30-1.30 for somewhere warm to change/use the loo and have a shower. please do not bring any of the cross country course in with you-IE LEAVE ANY DIRTY SHOES OUTSIDE.
 
The Limpers will provide hot drinks and bikkies during and after the races for a donation from runners and supporters.Marshals and Red Cross will be welcome to enjoy refreshments provided courtesy of us. This will be in the park or at the Leisure centre if the weather is appaling
 
Please Park your car respectfully in the village-the park is around 400m from the Leisure centre. try and car share where possible to avoid congestion and parking in front of Lauder Kirk which strangly enough is pretty busy on a Sunday. 
 
If you have not done the route before it involves a lot of hills and mud as well as water and the odd gate and duckboards and occaisional wildlife and dog walkers. It is suitable for most types of trail shoes but spikes might cause problems on short stretch of tarmac path and duckboards.
 
And finally
 
Please exchange pleasantries with our Marshals and timekeepers-they would rather be running but are there for your safety and security.
 
Have a great run on the 29th
 
Graeme Sutherland
