Moorfoots at Inter-Counties XC Championships (Birmingham)

There was a 4-strong Moorfoot contingent representing the East of Scotland at the Inter-Counties XC Champs at Birmingham on Saturday 10 March. This was also the final round of the UKA McCain XC Challenge.

In exalted company, Sarah McCormack had her best XC run of the winter with a strong 17th place in a field of 248 in the senior women’s race behind English champ Gemma Steel and Steph Twell, helping the East to team silver. Scout Adkin also came home with a team silver medal as part of the U-20 East team, her 48th place out of 144 behind rising star Emilia Gorecka meant she was the fourth and final counter for the East and made the long trip down from university in Aberdeen worthwhile.

Two of our recruits from Selkirk were also in action for the East with John McLean and Jack Stanners both having top-half finishes in the U-17 Men’s and U-15 Boys’ races respectively.
