The "known" issues have been sorted. Errors, omissions, misspellings and even the "I didnae' even run but I'm in the results" etc. have, hopefully been dealt with.
Your patience and understanding are appreciated. As the series grows ever more popular it is a fairly arduous task standing in the cold, number spotting and time keeping for 200+ runners who will insist on all trying to finish at the same time.
Also, we don't know about "mistakes" until we let you see the results - so please treat the first draft as simply that.
If we get no more queries I will tidy up the first three legs results and compile the "overall standings etc" in the next week or so.
Here's a thought though - None of the junior results have had any misspellings this year. Perhaps we should get the juniors to fill in the entry forms on behalf of the seniors :-)
SENIORS (updated 05/01/13)
All that is left is to remind you that the next race is on 13th January at Paxton House and, while it might still be a bit early, we'd obviously just like to say....

A couple of items have been left by runners at Peebles:
A pair of Ron Hill tracksters, black with white piping, size M. And a “Buff” (no details about style/design etc…)
If you think these may be yours then they can be claimed from me at Registration in the Tea Rooms at Paxton.

Please see the following advice from Moorfoot Runners about round 3…..
"Details above of Moorfoot Runners hosted Peebles BXC leg on Sunday 2-December 2012.
A familiar course and the usual Peebles ingredients - plenty of mud, the 'heart-attack hill' at the 2.5 mile mark and plenty of cheery marshals dotted around the course - looking forward to welcoming everyone to the race....
Car parking - please avoid a car park melt down and Sunday morning road rage incidents by considering parking in our plentiful town car parks and walking to the park - this may add 10 mins to your day but will help reduce everyone's stress levels and help the organisers focus on the race event - thanks you !"

Not as hilly as two weeks ago - but hopefully interesting in its own way.
As ever, soon after an event, please regard these results as PROVISIONAL, we will look into any errors or omissions you bring to our attention. However, like a lot of folk we generally enjoy a day or two of "rest" after an event - so don't expect to see changes made too quick.
Looking forward to Peebles in two weeks time. Lets hope for mud and hills!!
There are loads of pictures from Bob Marshall HERE.
As well as a load from HELPs Sandy Wallace HERE.

The next race is at Whitesands near Dunbar.
The route is pretty much the same as last years (though we may take out the “rocks” section).
A rough outline of the route is available on the attached map. Please note however that new fencing for livestock has been installed since last year, so minor changes may have to be made. Both routes (junior and senior) take in beach and coastal trails. Studs but not spikes recommended (road shoes would be OK too).
Details of Whitesands car park can be found on here:

Conditions were perfect and the route was fantastic (loads of mud!!).
Please note there has now been a couple of minor changes to the seniors results.
As alwaes. Let us know of any errors and/or omissions. Please be patient though - we cant always make changes on the day you let us know. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A big thanks to the timekeeprs and number spotters.

To be eligible for prizes, the runner must have “paid up” and completed FOUR rounds. If more than four rounds are completed, then the best four will count. Final placings are found by adding your four best finishing positions within your category. In the case of ties, the award goes to the best placed in the last or latest round.
For young athletes there will be at least a first prize in each category irrespective of the number of entrants.
For Seniors, if there are too few entrants in any category for prizes to be awarded, the category will collapse into the “harder” category, e.g. FVV will compete as FV.
Minimum age for Young Athletes is 8 years.
Despite “Birthdays”, your category remains the one, correctly recorded, on the entry form on your day of entry for whatever round you first entered, i.e. only age on day of entry matters.
The “team” competitions, (Male and Female for Seniors), will be decided on the basis of overall finishing positions of the first three club runners per round for the BEST FIVE rounds added together. There will be a trophy for the first team, (and should that not be one of the organising clubs, an additional team trophy for the first “organising club” team). A Young Athletes team prize will be awarded in the same way.
Every senior runner gets “two” finishing positions: overall and category. There are additional prizes (irrespective of category) for first overall male and female and first overall male and female from the organising clubs. Winners are restricted to a maximum of TWO awards, one of which is their category prize.
All rounds start at 11.30 am (Young Athletes) and 12 noon (Seniors, Vets) on Sundays. Registration from 10.30am (Rounds 1 & 2), 11.00am (Rounds 3 –6). Dates and venues are listed below.
Runners MUST complete the correct course as marked or they will be penalised. The “referee of the day” will rule on an appropriate penalty.
The presentation of prizes will take place after the final round at a suitable venue. Prize winners, or their representatives, MUST be present to receive their awards. Refreshments will be available.
Dates have been selected to avoid conflicting with other events as far as reasonably possible. However some events will clash by day or weekend. The committee hope that you will be able to enjoy the whole series, complete at least four rounds and benefit from this extra competitive edge to your winter’s training.
An entry form will be posted here soon. It would be helpful if you could print it off and bring it with you to the first race.

Thank you to Les and all his helpers for laying on the course (indeed thanks to all the host clubs for their work during the series).
A couple of "Gremlins" managed to get into the works prior to the prize giving, but hopefully we've got rid of those.
Here are the provisional results for the 7th race to be getting on with.
JUNIOR CATEGORY RESULTS
SENIOR CATEGORY RESULTS
Please check the senior times carefully. A few runners did the race without numbers - you know who you are :-) and this caused problems for the timekeepers.
Let us know if there is a massive discrepancy between your watch time and ours (please dont bother us though with a second here or there).
Sunday, 12 February 2012
Remember, its the total of the first three runners in each race that count - THEN its the best five team results that count towards the final place.
Senior men and senior women have separate teams, while the junior team is based on both boys and girls.

the Rugby Club, where changing and the prize giving will be located, is at Poynder Park with pedestrian access for runners via Poynder Place.
The start/finish area and course will be close to and will be accessed via the main entrance to Floors Castle at the north end of Roxburgh St. (foot access only)
There is limited parking at the Rugby Club which will be reserved for the organising clubs, competitors please arrive early and be prepared to walk there are several large car parks in Kelso within 10 mins walk of the Rugby Club and the entrance to Floors, also a fair bit of on street parking in Roxburgh St, Bowmont St and Edinburgh Rd by Croft Park all of which lie between the Rugby Club and the entrance to Floors.
Sounds as though car sharing wherever possible would be helpful.
The organisers hope to have a map of the route soon, but promise us "some "interesting" features".

Tough going on the soft sand and the new "climb" up to the cliff top path made the senior race that bit more challenging.
Please find below the PROVISIONAL results for this race, as well as overall standings (by gender) after 6 races and category standings after 6 races.
Remember: For overall and Category standings your place is counted on your best 4 results!
One known issue with today's senior results - Are you a male runner, running in a brown vest (HBT??) who came in about 31.57 ? If so you didn't have a number on and failed to give the time keepers your name! Can you let us know who you are ASAP as this will no doubt affect the overall and category places.
Please let us know of any errors and omissions ASAP.

And a well done to all the runners who took part.
