Scottish Indoor 3000m Title for Christian

The Emirates Arena hosted the GAA miler meet in Glasgow on 7 January 2018 incorprating the Scottish Indoor 300om Championships.

Lasswade AC had three athletes competing, Lauren Dickson in the U20 women and Christian Graham and Euan Hood in the U20 men’s race.

Lauren ran very well in the women’s race to finish 3rd overall behind Naomi Lang (Aberdeen AAC) and Kate Gallagher (Central AC). Lauren was only a couple of seconds outside her PB and 10 seconds quicker than her previous indoor best!

In the U20 men’s race, Christian ran his own race sitting off the pace. He let a gap open between himself, the pacemaker and another two runners who went with the fast early pace. This paid dividends and made for an exciting finish to the race as Christian began to close the gap with a very strong finish over the last 800m, reeling in both runners to win and snatch the title from Jamie MacKinnon of Cambuslang. In the same race Euan Hood had a solid run, having had a bug over the festive period he ran well to equal his time from last year.

Congratulations to you all on your performances.
