SPONSORED BY NATIONAL LOTTERY COMMUNITY FUNDING
SATURDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 2015

On Saturday Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers hosted cross country races for local and surrounding primary and secondary pupils.  The event which was part of the club’s community lottery funded project to promote health and fitness among younger people attracted 108 participants across the various school age groups.  On crossing the finishing line all pupils received a medal for their efforts
In the opening run for P6/7 girls Charlie Frew from Hunter Primary in East Kilbride was the winner ahead of Rhiannon Morris from Hillside and Eilidh Kennedy from James Aiton.  In the corresponding run for boys Josh Keegan, Hallside, was the first to cross the line with Robbie Woods, Bankhead, second and Callum Young, St Brides, third.

In the older S3 – 6 age group Fernhill had a clean sweep with Shiobhan McBride, Sophie Lowe and Hannah McFadyen taking the top three places.  However, in the boys event honours were shared between Trinity High, Strathaven Academy and Cathkin thanks to Tracey Lewis, James Cathie and Euan Kennedy.

Running Seminar

Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers will be hosting a running seminar open to all clubs on Preparation for the Cross Country Season and Peaking for your Target Race.  The two guest speakers are Freya Ross and Mark Pollard with Mike Johnston chairing and there will be the opportunity to ask questions.

Freya is a multi Scottish Champion on country, road and track, GB Internationalist and a Commonwealth, European and Olympic Representative.  Mark is a double winner of the Scottish Senior Cross Country Championship and coach to Johnny Glen, Scottish U20 Cross Country Champion and GB Internationalist, and to Josh Kerr, the U20 European 1500M Champion.  Therefore, given their experience and achievements this should be a worthwhile and instructive evening just prior to the cross country season.

The seminar is being held on Friday 2nd October at 7.15pm in Cambuslang Sports Club, Langlea  Road, G72 8HG.  Tickets are priced at £2 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits.
