Jedburgh sprinters get chance to shine

This weekend, it is the turn of Jedburgh athletes to try and impress on their home turf, with Riverside Park hosting the Border Games fixture on Saturday.

Top race of the day is the 110m handicap, which has a first prize of £3,000.

Back marker for the sprint is Edinburgh’s Tom Holligan, the recent winner of the Selkirk Games equivalent. He goes off scratch.

A host of local runners are gunning for glory, none more so than Greg Turnbull (2.5m) and Craig Grieve (5m), who both have a lot to offer and will no doubt impress on the pastures of Riverside.

Amongst other Jed sprinters bidding for the prestige of winning the biggest sprint on the Borders Games circuit are Seb Harrison (5.5m), Iskan Barskanmay (6.5m), Terry Marshall (6m), Craig Gillan (7m), Eoin Lowther (9.5m) and Kevin Amos (16.5m). Another sprint event on the card is the 100m championship, where Holligan is again favourite.

Andrew Thomson (45m) and James Clamp (70m) are Jedburgh’s hopes in the 800m handicap.

Racing begins at 10.30am until noon and commencing again at 1.30pm. Other senior events and youths’ races make up the rest of the bill.
