Report on Ken Laidlaw Sportif 2011

posted in: Events, Fundraising, News

Fifteen cyclists took to the Border roads on Sunday 21st August to raise funds for the Katie
McKerracher Trust as part of the Ken Laidlaw Sportif. There were two routes – 52 miles
and 105 miles – with participants taking between 3 and 7 hours to complete their chosen
route. The fundraisers were kitted out in specially designed cycle shirts, and were given
the honour of leading the event through Hawick Town Centre (see photo). We would like
to thank Hawick Cycle Club for its generosity and for organising such a fantastic event.
We would also like to thank all of the supporters who cheered us on and ran the essential
feed stations.

Photos available here , here and here (many thanks to Ian Bell).
