Scottish National Masters Cross Country 2023

 Great runs today from the "auld yins" at Tollcross park in the east end of Glasgow.  Perfect conditions for racing: cool, dry day with no wind and a feel of spring in the air.  The course was a 3 lap 6k (ladies and over 65 male), 4 lap 8k for male 40-60.  It was classic cross country: fast on grass, with some muddy patches and short punchy climbs.  Great atmosphere with lots of spectators.  We all really enjoyed the edge of competing  in a large field of  runners from different clubs across the country.

Gillian has a great run coming 13th in the F45 category

Female results.

In the Men's race David Carter Brown has a stormer finishing 20th in the M40 Cat.  Dean finished 22nd in the M50 and Alan finished 27th in the M60 Cat.

Male results

Also a special note to Gala Harriers who had Daryl Hastie winning the men's race overall and Sara Green winning the female's race.  Pretty amazing for a Border club to win both at national level.

On the way home we rewarded ourselves with a trip to McDonald's for a Plant based burger !!!
