Its been on the bucket list for a long time and now was as good a time as any to give it a bash! ( excellent training for a race in January) 

Done it clockwise starting and finishing in Denholm ( big error should have started in Jedburgh that hill over towards Bedrule at the end was savage!).

It was a 6am start trying to make the most of daylight hours.

Wet and boggy for most of the route, weather was mostly kind with some rain showers but it was mild and with very little wind. 

We carried some supplies but made the most of local shops to fill up on water and get food supplies. Can highly recommend the sausage rolls from the bakers in Selkirk! 

A great day out on the trails!
