New year Run – 2 January 2011

From Graeme Sutherland : The very popular new year run is back with our friends and rivals from Gala.


date 2nd january


Start time -10.00 am at Tweedbank Track

finish time 11.30-12.00 at Lauderdale Hotel where there will be changing/heat/toilets/parking.


Cost £5.50 for tea/coffee and bacon rolls/egg rolls.


The full route is via the Southern Upland Way and is around 9 miles but if you feel you are not up to it you can start at Mosshouses 6 miles or Blue Cairn 4 miles.


Or you can do any run you like and meet us for breakfast at the times above.


This is a great way to blow of the cobwebs and set yourself up for the new year. It is not a race-the idea is to run with friends or even people you do not know and enjoy the crack,scenery,wildlife and breakfast. Take a camera/dog etc. all welcome. But do be prepared to cope with any weather the borders does throw at us. Take a drink and some enegy bars/mars bars etc


It is up to all runners to find their way to their prefered start and to arrange a journey home. There is no entry fee or marshals or first aid. It is at your own risk-saying that we have had years with over 50 runners from both clubs turning up as it is a truely great event.


Please by return give me the following simple information for Lauder Runners only..


1) Reply Yes I am definately coming and the number of family members/guests who will be having breakfast (The hotel trade is having a rough time and we need to give them as much notice as we can)


2) Reply no I will definately not be there


3) I might be coming and the date I will let you know by.


Gala are co-ordinating their own numbers but if any other club would like to co-ordinate your members then you will be most welcome. You will have to pay £5.50 to the hotel for numbers confirmed by Friday 31st December.


Look forward to a great morning running/eating and chatting.


Keep on running
