National Cross Country Championships 2017

Posted on: Monday, March 20, 2017

This year’s National Cross Country Championships were held at Bellahouston Park on Saturday 18th March 2017 and hosted by Glasgow Battalion.  Edinburgh, Leith & District Battalion were represented by 3 Juniors, 4 Intermediates and 1 Senior.  Teams required 4 runners to compete for team awards and I am pleased to announce our intermediate team lifted the 3rd Place Medals after a countback with Airdrie & Coatbridge District.  Our last counter finishing ahead of Airdries counter (32nd to 33rd).

All the Boys gave of their best but a special mention must go the Michael Swinton (25th Edinburgh) who took the Individual Silver Medal only 30 meters behind the Senior Champion, James Gillon from Wishaw & District (a Scottish International Runner).

Thanks to Currie Kirk for the use of their mini bus and a special thanks to Bill Brown (65th Edinburgh) for being our driver.
