Top Scottish athletes are competing for £4000 in prize money in our Cross Country GP – and Falkirk is the next battle-ground.

The Lindsays National XC on Saturday 26 February at Callendar Park represents the fifth race in the series, which covers six events in total.

Former winners Lachlan Oates of Shettleston Harriers and Morag Millar of Central AC top the tables at this stage but there are still plenty of points to be won at Falkirk and then at Loughborough in March.

Our Inter-District XC event at Irvine in mid-January was the fourth race in the series after points had previously been gathered at Lanark, Liverpool and the Lindsays District XC Champs at three venues.

In the Men’s division, Oates leads with 140 points with Olympian Andy Butchart in second on 100 points. Butchart’s Central AC team-mate, Jamie Crowe, is third on 86 points.

The top five is completed by Lasswade’s Christian Graham (82) and Scott Stirling of Falkirk Victoria Harriers (70).

Elsewhere in the top ten, there are representatives from Inverlcyde AC, Perth Strathtay Harriers and Cambuslang as well as Shettleston and Central AC.

In the Women’s division, Millar continues to dominate with the Central AC athlete on 172 points after her silver at Irvine.

Lasswade’s Sarah Tait is second on 104 points and there is a third-place tie currently with Mhairi Maclennan of Inverness and Nynke Mulholland of Inverclyde AC on 93 points.

The top five is completed by Eloise Walker of Glasgow University on 86 points.

Elsewhere in the top ten, there are representatives of VP-Glasgow, Bellahouston Road Runners, Aberdeen AAC, Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds and Edinburgh AC.

That means ten different clubs are represented in the Women’s top ten which is hopefully good for the sport in terms of range.
