Yetholm Border Shepherds Show Hill Race – Race Report and Results
Oct 09, 2017

It is good to see that the numbers are slowly increasing for this traditional show day and revived race, the junior route and first half of the senior route covers the original route which has been run since way before the current organiser was a boy! With glorious weather on the day and virtually the whole route on view the bumper crowd at the Yetholm Border Shepherds Show were able to watch a fully shod Brian Marshall storm home to victory in front of host club runner Tim McCall who had earlier in the day completed the 50 mile Wooler Wheel cycle sportive, local runner Chris Hutchinson followed closely to secure 3rd place. In the ladies, Claire Bagness of neighbouring club Wooler RC ran strongly to come home half a minute in front of last year's first lady Kate Kitchin and there were category wins for Digby Maass (Carnethy), Frank Birch and Pauline McAdam of Teviotdale Harriers. In the junior race which starts alongside the senior Event, Zico Field (Chirnside Chasers) 16.21, Sam McKinnon (Gala Harriers)16.33 and Sam Kitchin 17.15 had a great tussle with all three of them finishing well up amongst the seniors and looking like they could have carried on! First girl home was Elise Field (Chirnside Chasers) in a time of 21.21.

No names mentioned but someone was heard to say at start that this is "the best race in the world, please spread the word".......... I might be a wee bit biased he's not far wrong!
