Club Championship - "What's the Scores On The Doors?"

Club Championship - "What’s the Scores On The Doors?"

“Well, Larry. The names on the frames say….” Ahh.. they don’t do Saturday night telly like that any more (thank god).

Anyway, back to matters “running”…….

Results, so far, can now be found in the “Club Championship Races” section.

Please email the club with your marathon times for this year  so that we can keep this up to date (time achieved, where and when). Remember it’s your best time that counts – so if you do more than one keep letting us know.

We will also be in a position soon to list the dates of the Borders Cross Country Series for the 2010/2011 season. Remember that some of these races will also count towards the overall “scores on the doors”.

WHAT WE DID ON OUR SUMMER HOLIDAYS - II







I suppose when you set a competition that asks folks to send in pictures of them in their club vests "in unusual places" you've got to expect the unexpected.

Anyway. Three more entries. This time from Neil "J"....

A VISIT FROM WAGGA - GEOFF BREESE

A week or so back we were joined by Geoff Breese for a training run.
Luckily the weather and conditions were ideal so we went over the Doon
Hill route to give Geoff a chance to view some of our fine area. It also
gave Geoff a chance for a wee training run before taking part in the
World Duathlon Championships a few days later.

Photos of Geoff's vist to Hallhill and run round Doon Hill are here:

While some photos of the Duathlon are here:

Thanks to Jim for the pictures.

Not sure if Belhaven Best is in every duathlete's pre-event diet though!

Ben Nevis Hill Race 2010

Took part in the Ben Nevis Race again this year. Conditions were completely different to last year, with warm sunshine all the way as opposed to driving rain. Finished a few minutes later than last year in 02:28:31 (http://www.bennevisrace.co.uk/2010_Results.pdf), but I was carrying a cold and a whole load of other excuses which can be produced on request.

Once again was the first club member across the line, admittedly with limited competition.
