Reivers find form

MEMBERS of Roxburgh Reivers Orienteering Club are busy at the start of the autumn season with various trips around the country.

Five runners enjoyed a successful weekend in Yorkshire over the recent August Bank Holiday and came away with three class wins, courtesy of Kirstin Maxwell, Fiona Forrest and Ian Maxwell.

During September members also competed in Urban races in Lincoln, Sheffield and London.

The Home Internationals take place in October and November and Karen Maxwell has been selected as a reserve for the Scottish Junior team for the match in Northern Ireland. The following weekend sees the veterans’ match on Royal Deeside with John Tullie and Lindsey Knox in the team.

The first of the local club events is this Saturday afternoon at Bowmont Forest near Kelso. There are three courses available and help is available for newcomers.
