XBorder Run Series

Comments

๐Ÿ“œ Keeping you on your toes, this week we're doing the #waybackwednesday race reports! ๐Ÿ“œ
.
๐ŸŒŸ At the Scottish Athletics 4JStudios Masters track champs in Kilmarnock at the weekend it was ๐Ÿฅ‡ V45 gold and a PB of 4:30.85 for John Coyle over 1500m , with ๐ŸฅˆV45 silver for Daniel Scroop in the same event. Dan also took another ๐ŸฅˆV45 silver along with a PB of 2:12.83 in the 800m. ๐ŸŽ‰ Woo hoo! ๐ŸŽ‰ Well done both!
.
Meanwhile, down at the XBorder Run Series we had Jim Boyle (48:22), Alison JF (45:57) and #FriendOfGarscube member Cordelia O'Neill (45:47) racing the 10k from Carlisle to Gretna. Definitely worth the ๐Ÿ•” 5am start and ๐Ÿš˜ 200 mile road trip for a #Return2Racing.

Hi everyone - this is posted with the permission of the admins

I am lucky enough to now be running actual London Marathon in October with a charity place for The Sandcastle Trust - for families affected by a rare genetic condition . I have very kindly been gifted two free Virtual London Marathon places to help with fundraising and wondered if anyone here is interested. The places are official, so you will earn a medal and a shirt, and there is no minimum sponsorship needed (although I hope you'll raise as much as possible) you have the whole 24 hours to complete 26.2 on 3rd October, but I need a solid commitment to do this ASAP (tomorrow latest) . If you are interested please let me know. Thanks guys! As I said these are free places with no miminum fundraising commitment. I just need your help ๐Ÿ˜

Thanks

Well done everyone hope you had a great run. Please feel free to share/ save your photo if you wish x
Just in time, booked it whilst on nightshift then realised Iโ€™d have to do it on the way home carrying my backpack to get it in on time! Not the best time but itโ€™s done....although no borders crossed ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ๐Ÿ˜‚
X Border Virtual 10K completed. Rather wet one ๐Ÿ˜
A few of us did the "Virtual X Border 10K" today along side Thirlmere. Lovely run! with Stephen Gascoigne, Michelle Kirkpatrick, Caron White, Janice Talbot and Lesley Talbot.
Mine arrived today...cheers!
Forgot too post photo of myself and Julie Dodd
Happy with that, for an old (ish) man who only started running in Feb.
Virtual run this morning around our local roads with my gym girls AndrewSally Carter,Dawn Crosby,Sara Dawson, Sarah Ann Cowperthwaite. Bit more of a challenge than the XBorders route.
We did our own X Border run from Durham to North Yorkshire..
Used it as a tempo run as part of my marathon training!

Looking forward to the real thing next year!

Thanks for all you have done โค๏ธ

IMPORTANT EVENT CHANGES & KEY INFO - MUST READ

NEW RUN START TIME

We have decided due to a large entry from outside of the area to start the race at 10am rather than 9am! So there is an extra hour in bed for everyone on the race morning ๐Ÿ˜€ - it also means we donโ€™t have to set up in the Dark for once ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿคฉ

RACE NUMBERS

All Race numbers will be mailed out to runners to arrive early next week. This is due to the Greens of Gretna being closed and no suitable location available to pick up your numbers on the Race morning. To guarantee you receive your number by post you will need to be signed up by Wednesday 26th @ midnight.

Anyone signing up from Thursday 27th Jan to Thursday 3rd Feb will be classed as a late entry who can collect their number at the front of The Greens of Gretna, from the Late Entry Gazebo

LATE ENTRIES

Will be available on the day priced at ยฃ22.00 & ยฃ20.00

BUSES

Will be running from 8.40am to 9.40am approximately in order to get runners to the start line in time from the finish area at Kingmoor Park.

TOILETS

There will be 10 portoloos at the start location at the Greens of Gretna for all runners. Please note that with many runners arriving at the start area at the same time there will be toilet Queues. Be patient! They soon go down ๐Ÿ™Œ

ADVICE / IDEAS

All runners are welcome to get themselves to the start area. The buses from the finish are just an option. There is suitable parking at the Gretna Gateway overflow car park at the Greens if people get lifts to that start. Those giving lifts can also drive to the finish in good time to watch friends or family. (Via motorway) So they could realistically watch the start and the finish.

With the Greens closed it may be cold at the start line so wear a bin bag or an old jumper or something at the start. We will collect any left over clothes and take them back to the finish for people.

KEY RACE INFORMATION PACK

Every runner will receive all key run information by email by Thursday this week. This will also be added to the website.

All in all the changes including a later start time and mailed out Race numbers is a positive for those taking part.

We have only 100 entries left so please share this post to help us fill those places.

Thank you

Mike James
Race Director ๐Ÿ˜€
