East District Cross Country League - Stirling - Sat 21 October 2017


The East District Cross Country league starts up again this Saturday at Stirling University. Dunbar has not participated in this (at least in its own right) for some time. I have been in touch with Alex Jackson however, and we have been added back on to the club list, with our very own club number - no.48.
If you'd like to take part (and why not - it is effectively free, and a great warm up for the even more prestigious Borders League?!), you simply need to make yourself a number and turn up. No prior registration or declaration is required.
The women's race is at 1:10pm, and is around 6k in length. The men's race is 9k, and starts at 2:15pm.
I'm likely to go through, so give me a shout if you'd like a lift (probably three spaces available in the car, four at a push). It would nice if we could get a team out.
Best wishes
More info (lifted from the SA website) below:
"Each club or school that competes in the league has its own club number. In all races athletes wear that club number. Somebody from the club, usually the team manager [Nick: I will fulfil this role] hands in a slip of paper after each race with the names of runners in order of finishing. The clubs provides the numbers. [Nick: please make your own!]
Senior and U17 Women should have an "L" and U20 Women a "J". Masters women should have a "LV" after their club number.
In the Senior Mens Race Masters mark a large "V" after their club number while U20 Men mark a large "J".
There is no need to enter or declare on the day. At the end of the season each club or school pays subscriptions based on the number of finishers in all races through the season."

Club Championships 2017 - update

A revised version of the club championship table is available HERE.

The final races are as follows:-

14 October – Vogrie ParkRun (this will be scored as an actual head-to-head race, for those in attendance on the day)
5 November – Borders XC – Lauder
5 November – Strathaven “Run with the Wind” 10k
10 December – Borders XC – Spittal
31 December – Black Bun Run

There are plenty of points on offer, and with the various lists (Marathon times, ParkRun times, etc, etc) still to be settled, it is still all to play for.  You can even boost your totals by marshaling at the 10 mile race, and the Dunbar leg of the Borders XC!

If I have missed any performances then do please let me know.  And if anyone knows where I can get a copy of the Norham Two Banks results (or can confirm that they ran it) then, again, let me know.
