Have been keeping a close eye on the course at Paxton House and can assure you
that everything is now clear for the event on Sunday. Some snow remains along
the route at this moment, but by the weekend there should be less. Nevertheless,
underfoot conditions will be interesting with some remaining sections of hard
packed snow and the occasional section of muddy soft ground. Runners would be
well advised to bring a selection of footwear, if possible, to cope.
This is one of the few courses where runners are visible during the events so it
is very good from the point of view of spectating.
The tearoom, will be open at 10am serving teas, coffee, soup, rolls and so on.
Registration, which will be in the tearoom, is conveniently situated very close
to the parking area, and both the start and finish areas for the races.
Paxton House is easy to find next to the B6461 road to Kelso, 4 miles west from
the A1. For those who rely on satnav the postcode TD15 1SZ should help find it.
If you could message all the clubs taking part on the above I would be grateful.
