A great Article in the Scotsman. The tall gentleman in the back row is our very own Michael Crawford's great great Grandfather, known as Jock Crawford, who was a baker here in Melrose. Looks like they did Movember in those days too 🙂 Well done Murdo Mcandrew and James William Head for a great piece of local history. ... See MoreSee Less
Every so ofter you meet someone incredible. Please take a moment to read Fergus Crawley amazing challenge. We need more young men to speak out about mental health, and raise awareness of suicide prevention.
On 12/12/2018 I am attempting the Guinness World Record for the most weight squatted in 24 hours. I will need to squat 460,000kg, which is equivalent to over 11 empty Boeing 737s and works out at 320kg a minute. I plan to do this with 7,666 reps at 60kg.
My attempt is in partnership with the Movember Foundation, with the aim of raising upwards of £15,000 for male mental health and suicide prevention - as well as raising as much awareness and action along the way as possible.
I tried to take my own life in 2016, so I’m taking myself (in physical terms) into hell in the hope that I can inspire some men to take the necessary steps to get themselves out. Be a man of more words, as talking saves lives.
Well done Pip Brandon and Parker!Winner winner!! Area 9 side saddle newcomers winner 2018... parker FINALLY wins a trophy after 4 years!! 😁😂♥️ #jscrawford3rdgenltd #crawfordhorses Michael Crawford Debbie Crawford ... See MoreSee Less

Having bounced round the course in true Mo Farrah fashion, I can report that the course is in good condition and ready for Sunday.
Conditions are officially “firm although good to firm on one section” over the 5ish K course with the same 4 small inclines or 4 large mountain climbs depending on your level of fitness.
Two areas to watch out for is at St Aidan’s drive up to gateway, we have decided to lay a carpet of natural landscaping and at no extra expense to the runners. Second area is the area between Lowood bridge and Waverley hotel there are low branches. If you are same size as Crawfords (High Tower Donald excluded) then you will be fine but might impede those over 5feet slightly.
