The first of the Borders XC series took place at Lauder today. Lovely sunny conditions with a brisk wind and squelchy under foot with all the recent rain (but then again its a cross country so when is it not...). A very competitive field with a finisher every second when the pack was coming in. With 263 runners in the senior race the race was won by Andy Fallas of Carnethy in 26.16 for 4 and a bit mile course. Moorfoot results below, and a very credible first outing for Craig Rendle in a Moorfoot vest being the team third counter.

A quick glance at the club results tells me that for the organising team competition Gala (56) is slightly in the lead followed the Moorfoots (60) and then Dunbar (69) so it looks like it would be a tight race for the organising team trophy Overall it looks like Carnethy will romp it with 3 out of the top 4 in the first round and HBT going strongly too.
FYI the rules for the club trophy are as follows -
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).
