Paxton XC Sun 11th Jan
Once again we are pleased to have Paxton House as the venue for the NRC round of the Border XC series and would like to thank the management & staff for their co-operation, also the Home-Robertson family for generously allowing us access to the surrounding farm/woodlands.
Paxton House is easy to find....signposted on the B6461 Berwick to Kelso road, 4 miles west of
the A1. For parking we hope to be able to use the grass area adjacent to the main park but please arrive in sufficient time as in the event of bad weather we will revert to parking on the main drive/road.
No cars will be allowed to park on the drive in front of the house.
Registration will be in the tearoom conveniently situated close to the toilets, parking and start/finish areas of both races. The tearoom will be open at 10am serving teas, coffee, soup, rolls  etc. 
Toilets are situated in the courtyard.
There will be new routes for both Seniors & Juniors in 2015 which will consist of the usual mixture of parkland, fields, stream crossing(s) depending on the weather, woodland/riverside paths and mud......maybe even the "Norham Rope"! 
Seniors will complete a loop of the Junior route before heading off in search of adventure!
Maps will be on display in the Courtyard on the day.....please note the course is unsuitable for spikes.
In order that we continue to be made welcome at Paxton House......PLEASE park where directed, when warming up stick to the marked route on the farm/woodland and try to avoid using the toilets whilst wearing muddy footwear.
Note that under no circumstance will washing shoes in the toilets be tolerated!!!

Leg 4 Chirnside, Sunday 14th December.

Chirnside Chasers.  are extremely proud to welcome everyone to the fourth round of the Borders XC series at Chirnside. We hope we have set up a course that is challenging, enjoyable views and fun to do. Please wear off road/trail shoes as the both the junior and senior routes are unsuitable for spikes.
Please read the following information carefully so we can all enjoy the day. With a large number of people currently doing the series parking could be an issue unless everyone is sensible. We have kindly been given permission to use two areas to the south of the village, in and around the primary school, and near to the Ambulance station. There is only a 5 to 10 minute walk to the start from these car parks.

Please respect the residents in the village. There will be people in the car park areas to assist, however arrive in plenty time. Car parking in the Football ground is reserved for the emergency vehicles and Organisers. For those with satellite navigation the postcode for the school is TD11 3XH and it’s just off the A6105 road.
The senior route is just over 4 miles and starts and finishes at the football pitch.
The junior course is about 2 miles as follows:
