Lindsays National XC Senior Men’s champion Jamie Crowe and Women’s silver medallist Annabel Simpson are celebrating further cross country success.
The Central AC and Fife AC athletes are our clear winners in the scottishathletics XC Grand Prix for 2019-20.
Crowe and Simpson will each land £750 when we pay out a total of £4000 to the top ten athletes in the men’s and women’s divisions.
It is pleasing to note there were no fewer than nine clubs represented in the men’s top ten and eight in the women’s.
Points were gathered across six different cross country events starting with the Lindsays Short Course XC at Kirkcaldy last November and concluded at the Inter-Counties XC at Loughborough last month.
As it happens, both Jamie and Annabel had wrapped up the win with points accumulated prior to Loughborough but there were changes further down.

Springburn’s Michelle Sandison was third with 119 points with fourth place for Nynke Mulholland (Inverclyde AC) on 103 points and fifth for Mhairi Maclennan (Inverness Harriers) on 100.
