Lindsays North District Cross Country Championships – 09/12/2017

MRR/Gordonstoun hosted this year’s North District XC Champs with excellent on-course conditions producing some outstanding races throughout the day. Unfortunately, some athletes were unable to make the race due to weather conditions elsewhere but well done to those that persevered, especially those from the Islands and Caithness.

There were fine performances from MRR across all age categories – not only in terms of those that medalled but also in terms of the number of yellow vests on the start line. Of note were the following:


Sophia Green (U20)

Senior Ladies (Louise Cartmell, Kirstie Rogan, Michelle Slater, Justine Blaszk)

Masters Men’s (Gareth Jenkins, Paul Rogan, Colin Green)


Kenny Wilson (SM)

Ellyn Smith (U15)

Gareth Jenkins (Masters 40)

Senior Men (Kenny Wilson, James Wilson, Robbie Paterson, Paul Taylor, Gareth Jenkins, Paul Rogan)

U13G Team (Zara Gill, Beth Urquhart, Nicole Taylor)

U15G Team (Ellyn Smith, Niamh Whelan, Grace Jenkins)


Blair Milne (U15B)

Paul Rogan (Masters 40)

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the day a great success, particularly Ross Cairns, Steve Murdoch and all the officials; Gordonstoun staff for the excellent facilities; Elgin ATC for car parking/marshalling duties, and finally, to all the MRR helpers for their efforts before, during and after the races.
