Peebles Outdoor Film Festival, 27-29 Jan
At the Eastgate Theatre in nearby Peebles. This year’s event will once again feature big names (from the worlds of ultra-triathlon, fell running, mountain biking, and adventure film-making) plus a whole host of local heroes (runners, mountain bikers, climbers and more).

The Mighty Deerstalker, 11 March It’s back … with several thousand runners taking on the now infamous Mighty Deerstalker course in the hills, rivers and muddy sumps around Innerleithen.
Vallelujah Enduro, 26-27 March, Tweed Valley. Come and enjoy a real Tweed Valley adventure riding some of the best enduro tracks anywhere in the UK. The trails used will be kept under wraps until the event, but the stages will provide an awesome day out – and something a wee bit different. Thanks to the weather, the last two years’ adventures turned out a bit more adventurous than anticipated, so in 2017 expect dust and wall to wall sunshine. Possibly.
Games Week has something for everyone! Music from the wonderful Innerleithen/Tweedvale Pipe Band and St Ronan’s Silver Bands ( captured below in the lino print by local artist Neil Stewart of Narrative Ark) Fancy Dress Parade, Quiz Night, Treasure Hunt, Flower Parade, Athletics and much more! The week culminates in a walk up Caerlee to dispatch the De’il for another year. Intrigued? You really need to be there!
