Lee Pen – Race Report & Results – 16th July

Saturday saw the culmination of Innerleithen St Ronan's Games Week with the hosting of the oldest organised athletics meeting in Scotland, instituted in 1827.

 It included the Lee Pen Hill Race which includes 1,200 brutal feet of climb and then foot burning descent within the ‘modest’ 3 mile course which had 24 competitors this year. The race was won by James Dunn of Corstorphine AAC in the scorching quick time of 25:50 in scorching hot conditions! The female winner was club mate Sophie Collins, originally from Peebles and a Moorfoot as a junior, and they each enjoyed a £80 top prize which seemed particular apt when it was announced at the prize giving that they had got engaged only earlier this week! Many thanks to Walkerburn resident, and Gala Harrier Bob Johnson, for sponsoring of the Hill Race by his company Realistic Engineering Analysis, who also did the race before presenting the prizes.

 For the men 2nd was Felix Wilson of Carnethy, with 1st Veteran Brian Marshall in 3rd and 1st Local Andy Cox of the home club Moorfoot Runners in 4th. Magda Janus was second woman home and 1st Local, with Vickie Morrison of the Moorfoots claiming the veteran prize in 3rd.
