Games goers head for the Tofts

The open athletic season may be coming to an end, but there’s still a lot of running to be done yet.

That’s certainly going to be the case at Morebattle Games on Saturday, as the Tofts track meeting has brought about a good entry of senior, junior and youths’ events.

Top attraction on the card is the eight-heat 110m handicap and Martha Douglas of Jed AC, recent victor of the Langholm Games sprint, competes from 20m.

Another Jed AC athlete bidding for glory is Cameron Grieve, who goes from 8m. Race backmarker is Greg Turnbull TLJT (scratch) while Mhairi Henderson TLJT (23m), Jack Wilson Hawick (13m), Geoff Keen Selkirk (10.5m) and Euan Pettigrew Kelso (9m) are amongst the Border sprinters set to be in action.

The 800m handicap has Kelso’s Colin Welsh (15m) as its backmarker and includes Rory Anderson Hawick (45m) and Andrew Thomson Jed AC (55m).

Another distance race on the programme is the 3,200m handicap, which features Kelso pair Darrell Hastie (60m) and Chris Black (60m) plus Dianne Lauder of Gala Harriers (240m) and Dean Whiteford, Innerleithen (190m).
