Lothian Cross Country – Holyrood Park – 14/11/2020

Given the current situation with Covid 19 it was fantastic to see the above event take place yesterday morning at Holyrood Park, Edinburgh. I think keeping it on a smaller scale within Lothian and limiting it to junior athletes (U11- U17) certainly helped. Huge thanks to all involved but in particular to Edinburgh AC and Andy Ross of Harmeny Athletic Club for all of their hard work in making this happen. Thanks also to all of the officials and marshals who helped on the day.

The weather on the day was perfect, not too cold and it stayed dry. The fields in terms of size were restricted to a maximum of 30 which worked out well with only one age group (U13) exceeding the numbers which resulted in their being two waves. Lasswade AC had a great turn out with 21 athletes across all of the age groups with some fine performances. I think most were just happy to get some sort of competition. All being well the next event will take place at Fox Lake, Dunbar on 12 December but we will keep you all up to date.

Thanks to everyone, athletes, parents and officials for turning out to represent the club at this event and for adhering to the guidelines.
