OK. The "overall", the "category" and the "team" results are now published - Now including the junior teams!. The results are to be found by clicking on the "reults tab" above.

The "category" and "overall" should be fairly self explanatory. Suffice to say in the final reckoning it will be your best FOUR results... but as we've only had three legs so far it simply shows the total of the three.

Likewise, team results will ultimately be based on a clubs best FIVE performances, but so far all we have is three so......
The team spreadsheet shows the overall standings shaded in blue... each race is then listed to the right of this and that, in turn, shows the "gender placings" of each teams top three male/female runners.

Once these spreadsheets are in place the idea is to update them shortly after every race. However, a good rule of thumb will be "race results - same day (hopefully), overall, team etc... a day or two later".

As ever, your patience is appreciated.

Head for Peebles and then towards the west of the town on the A72 (Glasgow Road) towards the car park opposite the Haylodge Park entrance (mid way between the Hospital and the new Kingsland School). See Google Maps location here...

Registration/race start is in the park down towards the Fotheringham Bridge (foot bridge), less than 5 mins from the car park.

Again, please check your details in the register and the results and let us know of any errors or omissions at our email address .

It might be worth mentioning that the A703 from Eddleston to Peebles will be closed on Sunday 27th (Gala race day) from 9am till 4pm.  Some people coming from south west Edinburgh or Penicuik (Penicuik Harriers) direction may possibly use this road to get to Galashiels.

Wednesday, 23 November 2011


Round three of the series will take place at Galashiels.
The meeting place for start of the race is just outside Galashiels Swimming Pool (Google map to get dierections HERE ).

Junior race, as ever, starts at 11:30 and the Senior race starts at 12:00.
Please be aware that this leg is always popular and, given the numbers we've been getting, parking directly at the pool will probably be full quickly.
Can we request that clubs try to car share wherever possible and to leave time in your journey to allow for having to park elsewhere.

Remember to check this site prior to the race...just in case.


Photographer Brian Sutherland was on hand on Sunday at White Sands to get some nice action shots of the race.

A gallery of his photos can be viewed HERE


We've now had a chance to take on board various comments about the provisional results and can now publish what [we hope] are the finalised leg 2 results...

The Junior register can be found HERE
The Senior register can be found HERE
Juniors for round 2 HERE
Seniors for round 2 HERE

Thanks for your patience.

Can we politely request that during races, number spotters and time keepers are given absolute peace to carry out their tasks.
If you must know your time when you cross the line then why not ask Santa for a stopwatch ... it's only four weeks away!

ALSO: "Three Strikes And Your Out"... Anyone who waits until after round three to inform us that their "club name is missing from their results" and then it transpires that they have not filled it out in the form in the first place will be taken round the back of the registration area ... and shot.

It's hard to believe that the start to last years series was defined by snow and ice. This year? More than half way through November and runners went for a paddle in the sea after the race!

Anyway. As per usual (especially if you only registered today) please take a moment to check your details on the appropriate register and then have a look at the provisional results for today's run.

The Junior register can be found HERE
The Senior register can be found HERE

Provisional results for juniors for round 2 HERE
Provisional results for seniors for round 2 HERE

Any errors or omissions please email us and let us know. We do know of a couple of errors in the junior results where runners went through without their numbers being recorded - IF IT WAS YOU LET US KNOW!
However, any changes may not be made until the middle/second part of next week.


Please note that despite a recent incident with "travellers" at White Sands, Sunday's race is still on.
The "travellers" have left and the site is clear.

HOWEVER. Like any club Dunbar can not foresee every event and happening and it's advisable to check this web site prior to departure for any race.

Please note that this years Dunbar race is at White Sands (as per last year).
Map of the senior route is attached. The junior route is similar, but takes a loop back to the start after the light house (rather than go all the way).

Any amendments that have been notified to us by 11th November have now been made to the results of the first leg.

Sunday's race at White Sands near Dunbar is fairly flat.
The terrain is a mixture of beach and grass trails. However, there are stretches of the route that are very stony... so spikes may not be the best choice. Ultimately though, as ever, choice of foot ware is yours.
