Wilton Park, Hawick, 17 March 2018

Thank you to all who came along to support this event.   A small turnout on a bitterly cold day with the fierce wind made more ferocious by the frequent snow flurries which punctuated the morning & the afternoon. Thankfully the weather relented during the hour of the event and I hope those who came along enjoyed their runs. Orienteering & running events elsewhere reduced the usual number of participants but it was good to see a few new faces taking part. Wilton Lodge Park is not very technically demanding but it offers the opportunity for fast & pleasant running. And a few took the opportunity to try out the new CafĂ© facility over the new McLaren Bridge too.

As ever it was a RR team effort;  setting-up, running and then dismantling the event.   First Robin helped place the control flags , Lindsey worked her usual magic on the computer side for entries & results, and finally Robin, Eb & Bridget collected in controls. Thank you. The efficient clearing-up operation allowed me to get down to Mansfield Park in time for the 3pm kick-off (full-time score Hawick 38 Melrose 3). See you at the Summer Sprint Series starting in April.
