Primarily thought up as a training run taking in the 7 Trig Pillars closest to Hawick, now the challenge has been set to come up with the shortest or quickest route to complete the circuit.
A circular walk from Hawick, climbs along tarmac roads and onto farmland crossing grass fields to reach two of the seven trig points that surround Hawick.
Spectacular panoramic views of the Borderland hills, from Ruberslaw round to the Eildons, the hills of the Northumberland National Park and Lake District, as well as the other 5 trig points surrounding Hawick are the reward for the climb up Wiltonburn Hill and Branxholme Hill.
Warning: Can we remind you to respect farmers who have livestock in these areas, particularly during the spring when there are newborn lambs and calves. Please ensure all gates are properly closed behind you and that all dogs are kept on a lead.
