Please read the following information carefully so we can all enjoy the day.
With around 500 people expected on the day PARKING could be an issue unless everyone is sensible. DO NOT PARK ON THE A68. We will NOT be supervising car parking as we assume that you will use common sense and park appropriately. Please make every effort to fill your car with other runners, be patient. and arrive in plenty time by 10.30. Car parking in the Health Centre Car Park is reserved for emergency vehicles and race marshals and organisers. There is no parking around the very narrow roads around the park. The main parking (60 plus spaces) can be accessed by following the sign for Stow from the A68 and turn left (signposted Primary School). Please park in the marked bays in the car park and primary school car park, and on the left-hand side of the route opposite the houses. Do NOT block any resident’s access. Please follow the following guidance as there is plenty of parking within the village all within a 10-minute walk of the public park where registration and the start/finish is located.
From Edinburgh and the North turn first right before the filling station and park on the bays around the recycling area (20 places) or first right past the filling station for on-road parking around Brownsmuir Park, taking care not to block residents’ entrances. From the South take the first left after the 30 miles an hour sign and park on street in Lauderdale Drive, again taking care not to block entrances. From the minor road from Galashiels the Southern Upland way car park can accommodate about 20 cars. If you plan to go for lunch/drink at the Lauderdale Hotel please inform them if you wish to use their car park.
Public toilets are available in the Main Square in Lauder and in the football pavilion where refreshments will be available for a small charge. For those new to Lauder there are numerous places to enjoy a coffee and all thelocal hotels serve meals at lunchtime.
