Thanks to the kind sponsorship James Jones and Sons Ltd and timber contractor active throughout southern Scotland there was no additional fee to enter the series.
Series Co-ordinator Colin Williams, Club Secretary of the Moorfoot Runners, said
"For faster runners there has been a bit of prestige to compete for, but overall the idea is to promote the different races throughout the beautiful Scottish Borders in an increasing busy calendar and hopefully motivate to get out and enjoy the hills.
The series has been a real show case for what the region has to offer. The races stretch all across the Borders ranging from the Pentlands by West Linton in the west, to the Cheviots by Yetholm in the east and with other venues including Peebles, Earlston, Melrose and Selkirk. All the races saw an increase in entries and in total 500 individuals took part in at least one of the 10 races, with 22 runners gaining a series placing with local Borders clubs Teviotdale Harriers, Moorfoot Runners and Lauderdale Limpers well represented."
