AMATEUR Rugby Podcast host Tim Tunnicliff finished his Great Rugger Run 2022 in the Borders last week.

The fundraiser, which aimed to help the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, incorporated more than 500 miles in 25 days on a route encompassing 104 clubs across Scotland.

The route took Tim across the West Highlands, Glasgow, Ayrshire, Stirling, Dundee, Fife and Edinburgh.

On Thursday, he ran from Haddington, in East Lothian, to Netherdale. Then the following day he braved high winds and heavy rain to head for Selkirk where he visited the rugby club.

From Selkirk he ran to Hawick and visited Hawick Wanderers and Hawick RFC, before heading to Jedburgh where he visited Jed-Thistle and Jed-Forest.

On Saturday morning, he took off from Jedburgh to Poynder Park, the home of Kelso Rugby Club; then onto St Boswells before finishing his journey at Doddie’s old ground, the Greenyards – just in time for Melrose v Aberdeen Grammar in Tennent’s National Division 1.

He was welcomed onto the pitch by a guard of honour from players of both sides.

Tim said: “The clubs in Scotland have been overwhelmingly positive. First off, they all love Doddie (Weir) and love the charity and really want to help.

“I’ve been welcomed very warmly by the clubs in Scotland. Every experience has been different, and it varies especially with the timings and days I turn up.

“There are days when I have arrived on a Monday morning, but there have still been people from that club there to welcome me and wish me well.

“On the days I have arrived when there is training or a game, the atmosphere has been incredible and turning up to people cheering me on and welcoming me has been really special.”

So far Tim has raised more than £9,000 of his £10,000 target. To donate visit
