Peebles Round - Update

We still propose to go ahead as there has been no new snow today, but if you can please check this site in the morning before you leave.
We are at Hay Lodge Park at the W end of Peebles.  It has parking across the road. Registration is at the Rugby Club building in the park.  It's not ideal so please bring a completed registration form and the correct money.
The toilets there are problematic due to frozen pipes.  There are public toilets at Eastgate Car Park (Edinburgh Road), School Brae (off the High St), and Kingsmeadows Rd Car Park.  Also the Neidpath Inn just down from the park gates opens at 12.30 and sells hot food.
The usual steep hill has been removed from the junior race, but the course has an inch of powdery snow and  spikes, studs or trail shoes are advised.  Trainers without a good tread will be a disadvantage though no more so than in muddy conditions.  Similar advice applies to the senior race.  Also, it is cold.
PS If you are paying by cheque it should be made out to 'Winter XC Series'.
