BORDERS XC - LAUDER

Only a few days to go until the first round in Lauder. Please read the following carefully.The senior event is FULL. Please do not turn up expecting to enter on the day as your request will be politely but firmly refused.

Parking
There is ample parking in Lauder within a 10 minute walk.
From Edinburgh turn right at the Lauderdale Hotel and then 1st left towards the primary school. this area can accomodate over 50 cars in the car parks and on street parking (Allanbank Gardens). Park at the other side from the houses and do not obstruct the residents exits.

From the south after the Kelso turn off on your right take the first left. There is ample on street parking around the Maitland Park area. Again respect the residents property and access.

From Gala there is a small car park at the southern upland way car park which will take 20-30 cars.

If you are helping on the day you must use the new Health Centre Car Park which will be reserved for this purpose.

We will not be supervising parking and I have asked our community police to be aware of the extra traffic, and they will enforce any issues around selfish parking and take appropriate action.

Registration
Please bring along your confirmation e mail to speed up the registration process. Please allow plenty time and be patient as we cope with around 350 runners. Please remove all muddy footwear before entering the sports pavillion. there will be refreshments available to buy before during and after the event.

Course.
Hilly,muddy,scenic and tough and as 2012. Not suitable for spikes. Although the red Cross is in attendance and a full risk assesment has been carried out you are responsible for your own safetyand this is a condition of entry. Please follow the instructions of the race director and marshals.

We have had a few issues organising this series but we look forward to a great start to the 2013 series. Please check the website before you start your journey as the Race Director reserves the right to pospone the event due to inclement weather or unacceptable risks to participants or spectators.

I hope you enjoy your day
