The above event takes place at Holyrood Park in Edinburgh as part of the Great Edinburgh International Cross Country event which includes some of the worlds top cross country runners. Last year saw one of the most exciting races I have seen at the event with Callum Hawkins giving the home crowd something to cheer about as he gave it everything to try and win the senior race, narrowly missing out in the final sprint to the line.
Lasswade have always had a number of athletes selected for the East of Scotland team in recent years and they have always performed well. This year is no exception with five athletes having been selected:
Ross Wolfenden (U13)
Harry Henriksen (U15)
Christian Graham (U17)
Magnus Tait (U17)
Sarah Tait (U17)
Why not make a day of it and come along and cheer on your team mates and also watch some top international athletes in action.
Congratulations to all of the athletes selected and good luck on the day!
