Runners started opposite Jedburgh Abbey and ran through the square down towards Woodend and the back of Riverside out onto the A698.

The course then turned right for Kelso before looping left before Crailing on the B6400 to Nisbet turning right to go round Crailing church before coming back onto the A698 once again. After a wiggle round the lay-by the route continued on towards Kelso. Approximately one mile further on the runners turned right for Eckford and then left back to the A698 to start the return journey.

The route is virtually the same on the return except the wiggle round the lay-by at Crailing is omitted and instead of turning left past Woodend the runners continued on to Bonjedward before turning left onto the paved area alongside the A68, down past Riverside and then they finished on the grass by the river opposite Mary Queen Of Scots House.

Last years Simply Scottish Jedburgh Half Marathon was blessed with sunshine but this years runners had to contend with torrential rain. Fortunately the temperature was on the mild side.

The finishing line - Simply Scottish Jedburgh Half Marathon 2005


After several years of running this successful event, The Jedburgh Half Marathon is looking forward to another record breaking number of entrants. As last year, this year�s race extends beyond the town taking in picturesque Borders countryside as well as providing a challenging route for competitors.

In addition, there is also a Wheelchair 10k race for those with disabilities, which has proved very popular in previous years with notable winners such as Dame Tanni Grey � Thomson.

Jedburgh is the only town in the Borders to host a Half Marathon and because of this, the event attracts runners from the local area as well as further a-field from the North East and Edinburgh. It is also part of the Navyblue Scottish Road Race Grand Prix ensuring that it attracts the best of the running fraternity.

This year, the event is being sponsored by Emtelle. Commercial Director, Tibor van Melsem Kocsis says "By sponsoring the half marathon, we hope to highlight Emtelle's commitment to endurance, hard work, commitment and upbeat go ahead thinking. The health and wellbeing of our employees - and by extension their family and neighbours is extremely important to us"

The event also has the support of the Scottish Borders Council. Jane Warcup of Scottish Borders Council says � It is wonderful to be able to assist with this excellent half Marathon in Jedburgh. It is a truly unique event taking place at a time of year when runners are thinking about hanging up their running shoes for the winter. It is a fitting climax to the season� .
