With regret the 2020 series including The Border Raider will now be postponed until 2021.
We have been monitoring the fast moving Coronavirus pandemic, which has seen a real escalation in the last few days. It was felt that the next few weeks will see this escalate further. In light of this we have made the difficult decision to postpone all three events until 2021.
Our priority at the moment is the health and wellbeing of runners and their families, as well as the army of volunteers needed for race day. With the limitations on gatherings and non-essential travel already being implemented, it was felt that the only responsible decision was to postpone the event.
As the event is being run for and behalf of Border Search and Rescue Unit, a member of Scottish Mountain Rescue, we were also concerned that with the developing situation demands on our volunteers to assist the Police and Ambulance Services could increase. Running the event during the pandemic could also have a negative impact on our ability to provide our live saving services.
All entrants will receive an email from SiEntries in the near future explaining how to claim a full refund or make a donation to Border Search & Rescue Unit.
We apologise for any inconvenience our decision causes.
