Dave C’s report on the National XC Relays

The National XC Relays were held at Cumbernauld on Saturday 28th Nov. on a dry but cold afternoon over a testing undulating course.  The vets O35 and O50 teams comfortably won their respective team titles while the junior/senior team were just outside the medals in 4th place.  History was made when the club fielded a team for the first time in the junior/senior female event and the trio finished a very creditable 8th.  Our young male athletes went one better in 7th place with their female equivalents in 15th spot.  It was encouraging to finish 7 senior male and almost 6 male young athlete teams although we only completed one female young athlete team.
