Illness, injury and location meant that our representation at the East District Cross Country Championships in Aberdeen were limited to Kerry and Iain T. Both ran well, with Kerry finishing in a very respectable 60th place and Iain T 179th overall and 2nd V60 (and 1st V65). Former Harrier Sol Sweeney, running for Perth Strathtay, finished 3rd and has been selected to run for the GB and NI team at the Great Edinburgh International XCountry in Edinburgh in January.
Iain's run puts him ahead of Phil M and Gordon M to the top of the men’s championship table. With 2 possible races left, Iain has 64 pts with Gordon on 61 and Phil on 50. Roger is lurking ominously on 25 pts and could yet mount a late charge for the title. However, he’ll need to race at both the remaining races to have a chance.
For the women, it’s a straight battle between Kerry and Maddy. Kerry is currently on 73 from 3 races with Maddy on 50 from 2. It could all change at Broxburn on 14 January though!
