Inter District Cross Country Champs – Stirling – 12/01/2019

The inter district championships had been held for a number of years at Holyrood Park, in Edinburgh. However, with funding for the event being withdrawn by Edinburgh District Council the event was moved to Stirling this year.

In recent weeks the weather has been mild and dry and this weather continued over last weekend meaning that although it was windy on Saturday the course was in very good condition underfoot with little or no mud.

Lasswade AC had three athletes competing and first off was Harry Henriksen in the under 15 boys race. The course really only had one hill at the start and the rest of the course was flat or downhill  which suited the faster track athletes, however Harry ran well and got stronger the longer the race went on working his way through the field and finishing in 3rd place and helping the East to 2nd team place.

In the Ladies race we had two athletes, Amy Frankland in good form after recently setting a personal best over 3000m indoors was representing Scottish Universities and Keira Gore in the East of Scotland team together with older sister Freya Murray- Ross.

Amy Frankland had a strong run to finish in 20th place helping the scottish universities  to 2nd team place. Keira had a solid run a few places further back in 34th place while sister Freya was just inside the top 10 in 9th place helping the East to 1st team place.
