Scottish Urban League No. 7
*** Start List for Sunday is now available HERE
*** Final details are here: Final details
Jedburgh is an ancient Royal Burgh, set in the heart of the Border Marches and was home to raiding families in the infamous days of the Border Reivers. Things are a lot quieter now, except on days when the Ba Game is played and shop keepers shutter their windows as the Uppies and Doonies vie for supremacy, but all will be peaceful on the last Sunday in September, except for orienteers trying to navigate through the ancient alleys, lanes and parks of this picturesque town. Elite athlete Kirstin Maxwell will use her local knowledge to test runners’ skills, and being a new venue for orienteering, Sunday September 27th is a day not to be missed!

Parking and facilities. Parking is in the Glebe car park, which is the southern of the main town car parks. Coming from the south on the A68, turn left just past the 30mph signs and turn immediately left again. From the north follow the A68 into Jedburgh and ignore the sign to the Town Centre and Mary Queen of Scots House. Approximately 300m later, turn right for the Abbey and you will see the car park straight ahead.
Limited toilets, SI card hire and download will be in the Jed Thistle club rooms, immediately adjacent to the car park.
