Unfortunately with no pictures to prove yesterday's West District Cross Championship was a very wet & windy day in Linwood Renfrewshire. Going into the event we only had 7 athletes spread over the under 13 and under 15 age groups male and female but with call offs and injuries it was down to the trio of Lucy Saez (u13), Marc McQuade (u13) and Ross Cameron (u13). They were left to battle against the other West District clubs in the wet and windy weather.
First up on the 3.2k course was Lucy Saez who committed to doing all the club races on a promise from her Dad Mark to get a fancy bag. Lucy was happy with her performance as at the end she said there was a few runners who didn't complete the race. Lucy's time of the day was 17:53.
Next up was the under 13 boys, Ross Cameron and Marc McQuade on the same 3.2k course. Both athletes performed really well and didn't hold back. Ross was the first Harrier home in 13:14 (with no xc spikes....Ross Christmas is round the corner hint hint) and Marc finished in 14:36.
Really proud of Lucy, Ross & Marc for competing for Calderglen Harriers, as it is all part of your training and helps the club to raise our profile as a competing club in the West of Scotland.
This is last district cross country of 2014 which leads on to the National XC Championship in Falkirk in February. So lets see if we can get all the under 13s, 15s and 17s racing for Falkirk. Now that would be a nice Christmas present for John and I....
