    Please note that the Forest Burn fell race scheduled for Sunday 14th August  has had to be postponed. The show with which it is associated has been cancelled due to waterlogged fields, so parking is impossible and therefore the race has been postponed. It is hoped that there will be some alternative festivities arranged later in the year and the fell race will be scheduled to coincide with these and I will provide details as soon as I have them. I am sorry for any disappointment.
    Have a good weekend running if you can
