The Scottish Senior hill running championships were held on Saturday at the Ochils 2000 race.

Taking home gold in the men’s race was Andrew Fallas of Carnethy with the women’s race winner being Catriona Buchanan of Ochil.

Then, on Sunday, there was more hill running action at the Junior Home International trials event in Aberfoyle. Results are available above but we should stress these are, as yet, incomplete. Details which have been given have been verifided.

We will announce the Scotland team selections for the Junior Home International in due course but the top two in the U20 and U17 races gained automatic selection.
