Organiser's Description

Borders Cross Country winter series 2021/22

Junior race starts at 11:00am

Senior Race Starts at 12 noon

A very popular series of real cross country races

Welcome to the Borders XC 2021/22. There are a few changes on how the series will be managed. A new wrist band contactless timing chip will be used to allow a safer environment for officials and runners, in particular officials at the finish line.

Each runner will keep their own unique wrist band and will wear this together with their bib number at every race. The wrist bands are light weight and robust and can be kept not only for this series but re-used for future races year after year. There will be a purchase cost of £5 per wrist band.  Replacement bands will be available again at a cost of £5 each.

Senior Cost:

£16 for all eight races plus £5 wrist band total £21

Junior cost:

 £10 for all eight races plus £5 wrist band total £15

To avoid congestion at registration all bib numbers and wrist bands will be posted out prior to the first race at Lauder on Sunday 7th November 2021.

To minimize mixing of junior and senior participants. The junior race will start at the earlier time of 11:00am. The Senior race will start at the usual time of 12 noon

    3. To respect the rights, dignity, and worth of all those present and treat everyone equally;
    4. To consistently promote positive aspects of the sport such as fair play and never condone rule violations.
