Ethos of the Borders Cross-Country Series
As this is the 25th Anniversary of the Borders Cross-Country Series it is an opportune moment to remind ourselves of the ethos behind this series. The series was started twenty-five years ago in order to give all runners, regardless of ability and / or age, the opportunity to take part in organised – hence safe - cross-country running. The premise behind the series is that all runners are able to experience the joy, excitement and benefits of running cross-country in a friendly, supportive and sociable environment whilst enjoying the magnificent scenery to be found in the Borders, East Lothian and North Northumberland. The competitive element has always been – and still remains - secondary to this. In order to preserve this ethos of friendship, support and non-competitive rivalry, the Committee has introduced a Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct is, obviously, voluntary but the Committee hopes that all - both runners and spectators - respect and adhere to it.
