St Leonards's Park


(Hawick Moor, The Moor)

A race course in the Scottish Borders, St. Leonards's Park is situated a quarter-mile (0.5 km) west of Williestruther Loch and 2¼ miles (3.5 km) southwest of Hawick. Known locally as The Moor (pronounced, and sometimes spelled, 'mair'), its principal purpose is to hold a series of races each year in June, traditionally associated with the town's Common Riding. There are a few other race meetings at other times.
