ABBOTSFORD House will provide the stunning backdrop for Gala Harriers' Abbotsford trail races on Sunday.

The event is in its second year and hopes to attract runners of all ages and abilities from across the Borders and further afield.

There is a two-mile race for juniors with all competitors receiving medals, and in the five-mile senior race prizes have also been donated by local business Tempest Brewing Company.

This year will include a draw of race numbers where winners will receive Tempest Brewing merchandise.

Both trails follow scenic routes around the grounds of the house, taking in woodland areas and following the River Tweed, starting and finishing with Abbotsford House as the backdrop.

The junior race costs £5 for entry and gets underway at 11.30am, with the senior race starting at 12noon and costing £10, or £8 for SAL registered athletes.
