Borders bogie challenge

bb tony7aBorders bogie challenge – It’s that time of year again when thoughts turn to going downhill at Denholm in the Scottish Borders.

The small community near Hawick has an impressive annual calendar of events (all featured on Explore the Borders) including the Border Bogie Challenge.

Attracting entries and bogie enthusiasts from far and wide this year’s Border Bogie Challenge takes places on May 26.

It will feature the Scottish Junior Bogie Championship and host one of the adult sections of the Scottish Cartie Association Grand Prix.

New to the Challenge is a cycle race called ‘King/Queen of the Hill,’ a daredevil downhill run of 1km over jumps and obstacles for groups of 4 riders.

Border Bogie Challenge organiser Tony Lockey said: “The new race has been possible through the Cycle Investment Scheme. We are promoting Youth of the Borders this year and we are doing a great deal of work with Borders Youth Clubs and Clubs to get youngsters involved on the day – either taking part in races or on stalls.

“On the Green we have a selection of good quality Scottish Food and drink from a number of suppliers including the Juicy Meat Company as well as Over Langshaw Farmhouse ice-cream. The day will also feature a massive car boot sale. The event has become a very popular event for the Scottish Borders and attracts entries from throughout Scotland and England.

The Border Bogie Challenge is a great day out for all the family.

St Boswells Brass Band will be entertaining and Marshall School of Dance will be taking a turn around the Maypole. Border Cycles is attending and giving people a chance to try out its bike pump track.
