  • Jedburgh Ultra

    Report by Steven Gregg

    As a recent recruit to the Hillrunners, Meall a’Bhuachaille seemed too intimidating for an October weekend so I took on the less scary option of the 38 mile Jedburgh Ultramarathon.

    Despite biblical rain being forecast, it remained pretty good through the whole day. There was a lot of muddy running on riverside and forest paths before a stiff haul over the three windy Eildon hills, which signified the halfway point. The route met up with itself again for the last 14 miles, which had become increasingly boggy and energy sapping. The last stretch along the tarmac was tough going before the finish line, 7 hours 26 minutes in 45th place and sneaking into the top half of the field.

    A mug of tea and some cake was greatly appreciated at Jed Thistle Rugby Club. A well organized and friendly race for those of the long distance persuasion.
