The Broughton age group races mark the conclusion of the scottishathletics Junior Hill League.
Results for six races are within the document here – covering those athletes who have competed at least twice so far. Three races are required to make the league’s overall standings.
And the Broughton races carry double points (like the Cornalees races which were Scottish champs).
All the races are open to all, with eligibility only required for the championships and trials. The courses are excellent for those relatively new to hill running.
*Event organisers need a few extra helpers to assist with marshalling and other tasks. Race is located at Broughton near Biggar in the Borders on Saturday 24 August.
