Melrose Jubilee Fun Run.

MORE than 300 runners took part in Sunday’s annual fun run for charity, mainly the Borders branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The event was christened the Jubilee Borders Fun Run in recognition of the national celebrations. It started (see picture below) and finished at St Mary’s School in Melrose. The more serious athletes took less than 30 minutes for the course

All who took part in the run – sponsored by local business, J S Crawford – received a specially produced medal.
