Sprint Series 6 – Melrose (urban) @ Melrose
May 28 @ 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm

The 6th (and final) sprint race of the series will be In Darnick, followed by a short social/prizegiving.


The final event in the series is on Tuesday 28th on a new map and this will now include a YELLOW course, entirely traffic free. The rest of the area for the Sprint is a mixture of URBAN and WOODLAND, so if the ground is damp, shoes with good grip are advised.

Parking will be around the Broomilees Bridge over the Melrose by-pass, as featured regularly on traffic information signs in the Central Borders. Parking will be at the roadside, so please be considerate and leave room for locals, farm traffic and Tesco delivery vans to pass.

Following the Sprint, there will be a prize giving for the series, and we are very grateful to the Darlow family for hosting this. Their house is just round the corner from the start and finish, literally two minutes walk, so please come and cheer the winners – or collect your prize!

Entry fees:
Senior members £3,  Juniors £1.50
Non members:  £3.50 and £2.

Scoring: 6 events, with best 4 scores counting in the series. The winner of each race will get 30 points, 29 for 2nd and so on. (If there are more than 30 people everyone below 30th place will receive 1 point).
