Scout 10th for Scotland

Scout Adkin was in action in glorious conditions in The Lake District on Saturday batting it out for Scotland against teams from England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the 2013 Senior Home International. The uphill race over 8.7km from Keswick took in 940m of climb to the summit of Skiddaw and doubled as the UK trial for the European Mountain Running Championships in Bulgaria in July with the cream of Britain’s mountain runners in action. In what was her longest ever race ascent, the 19 year-old finished 10th of 21 in the International race in 58mins 46secs behind winner Emma Clayton (England) and she was 2nd in the U23 category to former junior rival Laura Riches (England) with whom she had yo-yoed until losing out in the final push to the summit. Here she is leading Laura around half-way.
