Inter District X-Country at Holyrood Park, Edinburgh 13/01/2018

The Inter District X Country in Holyrood Park Edinburgh was again the beautiful backdrop for these competitive races. Races where our athletes compete in the x country league to secure a place for Team North.

The weather was kind this year but underfoot was just the same as usual “mud”😀

Our first timers at this event did a great job in tackling the course amongst the best in their age groups in Scotland and we hope, it inspires them to continue to train hard and improve all the time

This is a fantastic event that sees athletes from club to International compete on the same course and support each other. Well done to all North especially MRRs who acquitted themselves well and had a super time.

MRRs results:
U13 G Zara Gill (28th) Beth Urquhart (35th) Nicole Taylor (39th)
U13 B Roy Taylor (40th) Bruce Newlands (42nd)

U15G Ellyn Smith (28th) Niamh Whelan (43rd)
U15B Blair Milne (13th) Joshua Milne (41st)

Senior Women

Kirsty Paterson (37th) Michelle Donaldson Slater (54th)

Senior Men

Kenny Wilson (19th) Robbie Paterson (51st) James Wilson (55th) Cameron Main (56).
(Unfortunately Cameron lost his shoe at the tight fast start. He then lost time putting this back on but continued to close the gap and finished the race anyway!)
