Hope you all enjoyed your post Christmas run in the sun (yes, sun!) today at Whittas Park. Results won't be published today due to a small technical problem with the map memory course. You're all patient people though, and some will remember having to wait weeks for them to arrive in the post! 😄
Thanks to Raymond and Jenny for organising it all, and providing fantastic post race food at Bothel Village Hall to raise money for Cumbria Blood Bikes. The total raised came to £420 - thank you for your generous donations.

HUGE thanks to the team of volunteers who worked so hard to make Border Liners 50th Anniversary Dinner such an extra special occasion. An excellent buffet meal was provided, the hall looked a treat with specially made bunting, the tables were elegant enough to grace a top class restaurant - and we even had BL themed chocolates!!

The club's inaugural meeting was held in November 1969 and the Anniversary Dinner took place at Bothel Village Hall on Saturday 23rd November 2019.

Well done to our BL Juniors and their support team who raised a grand total of £119.50 at Askham Fell on Sunday 1st September 2019. They achieved this by running another successful cake stall - and making good use of their new tent, purchased with the proceeds from a previous fund raising venture.
