Night event 2 is at Gala Policies, Galashiels.
Parking signed from the entrance to Gala Academy, Elm Row, Galashiels TD1 3JG
Registration: carry along the drive to the school, shortly turning left to the car park at the Science block. Registration, open by 6.15, Start and Finish will all be in this area.
Toilets available in Tesco or Asda before you arrive.
Terrain: Much of Gala Policies is runnable woodland with a good network of paths. As most of the trees are deciduous, paths can be hard to see at this time of year because of fallen leaves. The main paths are popular with dog walkers even after dark, so beware.
The Policies, with the Scott Park, surround Gala Academy. To the north and east are well lit streets, to the south the area is bounded by Hollybush Road and to the west are open fields. There are several streams and a pond, and some possibly slippery boardwalks, all of which should be treated with respect by runners.
Starts: From 6:30 – 7pm. Courses close at 7.45pm so come early if you think you might take a long time.
Courses: One course of about Orange standard, 2.2km and a little climbing.
Costs: Senior members £3.50, Juniors £1.50. Non members £4 and £2. Families a maximum of £8. Bringing the correct money would be helpful.
Equipment: A head torch is better than a hand-held one. Carry spare batteries in a pocket.
Night event 3 (and the last one) is at Selkirk Hill. Saving the best until last maybe, but you’ll have had some practice by now.
