Riverside race set to welcome runners

MOORFOOT RUNNERS host their annual Beltane 10km Trail Race on Sunday in Peebles.

The race starts and finishes at The Gytes, taking in a traffic-free route up-river through Haylodge Park and crossing at the Viaduct, before returning through the South Park Woods and back downstream again.

The race has proven popular in previous years with both club members as well as fun runners looking for a local challenge, with a hundred athletes competing last year.

Race registration opens at the Gytes Leisure Centre Peebles at 10.30am, with the main race starting at midday.

A junior fun run (Under-16) is held prior to the main race at 1130am, again based at the Gytes.
