Tweedbank and Melrose:

An exciting new format for RR – two urban sprints in one day, combined time for the two events will determine the winners and league points. Full range of courses including juniors. Ample car parking or why not take the train on the scenic journey from Edinburgh to Tweedbank Station from where it’s a short walk to the Arena. Both events are within walking distance of the Arena, but note that it's 2km each way for the Melrose race.  The Young Junior courses (Course 7) will both take place in Tweedbank though, with Race 1 around the Tweedbank Sports Complex giving an ideal opportunity for a junior to run on their own.  Start/Finish for Race 2 at Tweedbank is near the Arena.

Timing:  Sportident will be used with Si Air enabled.  Competitors without SIAC’s will be able to hire them from us.  All other Sportident dibbers can still be used, just “dib” as normal.  Note that any hired dibbers that are lost will be charged to you – £60 for SIAC, £30 for normal Si-dibber.

Courses: You may enter any course you wish but for UK and Scottish Urban League points you must do the course specified for your age class, see table below. You can’t enter just one of the races, and you must do the same class for both races. BOF members will, however, get separate ranking points for each race.  Courses are being planned for a winning time of approx.12-15 minutes.
