Moorfoot Runner Trail Race Series


Moorfoot Runner James Britton has kindly volunteered to organise a series of trail races for club members which will be run under 'handicap' based on recent race results (...dust down your recent slowest times and personal worsts 'PWs'...)
First Race is scheduled for Sunday 15-March (plenty of time to negotiate a whopper of a handicap...) at Cardrona Forest.
The race will start at 1000 am so make sure you are there nice and early on that Sunday.
Dates for subsequent races are TBC but second of the series possibly at Glentress in May.
Given James' prowess at the cross country and hill running, expect not a flat course.
"...mostly on major forest tracks but to keep things interesting there are a few sections of single track and a sharp climb up to the fort towards the end of the route.."
More details to follow...
As suggested by James, we will try and plan a future Sunday run at Cardrona to do some route familiarisation...watch the blog for the February and March training dates and venues...

I assume that as a committee member a preferential handicap mark will be forthcoming! Mick

A few of us did a recce with James on Sunday in the snow - looks like a great course....we took just over an hour at a sociable pace with plenty of stops; estimated distance is probably about 6 miles...

That's more or less my standard long run course. Nice wee short sharp steep section towards halfway.
