Holm Show Hill Race Results and Report
Aug 13, 2018

The Holm Show Hill Race

This new race near Newcastleton attracted a small entry of 8 for the 2km Fun Run and 10 for the 6km Hill Race on a glorious sunny day in the Scottish Borders. From the scenic car parking field the race took runners first along a quiet country road towards England before heading up sheep-cropped grass to the rocky summit of Carby Hill (258m). It then contoured along Blinkbonny Height with its large sink-holes before a gentle downhill run through several grassy fields back to the Finish.

The two courses were well thought out with plenty of marshals at crucial points, and everyone was complimentary about the pleasant underfoot conditions for most of the route which made for fast times.

Landowners the Lockhart-Smith family actively encouraged the race and put up a good selection of prizes, so many thanks to them. Local volunteers provided welcome refreshments afterwards. Hopefully with more publicity this lovely little race will attract a bigger turnout next year – the probable date is 10 August 2019.
