Lewis in action
Despite having a lack of under 13 runners to put out multiple teams, the Calderglen Harrier Young Athletes returned to this annual event with a small and relatively new team at Cumbernauld for the 2013 National Cross Country Relays Championships. The 3 Young Harriers in action on Saturday 26th October were Calum & Lewis MacDonald and Drew Gordon.

The second race of the event was the Young Male athletes running the  2.5k course.  First up for the team was Calum MacDonald (under 13) in  his second cross country for the club. Calum repeated his good performance standard he did at the West Districts a few weeks ago and his debut on this difficult course he finished in 12:10, taking over was his brother Lewis MacDonald (under 15) who was running with difficulty as few weeks ago at the West Districts.  However that is all behind him and he put in a steady performance of 13:42 for his first time at Cumbernauld.  The final leg was ran by club stalwart Drew Gordon who is a second year under 15.  Drew ran the course in 12:41, a course PB by 22 seconds.  Total running time was 38:33.

Once again many thanks to the parents of the young athletes for supporting the club at this event.
