Young Scots savoured the London Mini Marathon experience as U17 and U15 athletes took part in the much-loved road races.
It was a special moment for many as they pulled on a Scotland vest for the first time and ran London.
And Team East Lothian’s Corey Campbell underlined his potential with an excellent second place in the U17 Men’s race (with all athletes running 2.6k).
Corey led home a strong Scottish team performance in that U17 race with Kilbarchan AAC’s Oliver Patton taking seventh place and Fife AC’s Reiss Marshall in 11th. Giffnock’s Craig Shennan was 15th and Jamie Connor (25) and Aidan Page (39) completed the lineup.
In the U17 Women’s race, the best-placed Scot was Kilbarchan’s Amy Teasdale at 13th with Ross County’s Caitlyn Heggie only just behind her at 16th.
Millie McClelland-Brooks of Glasgow School of Sport was 23rd and Jessica Inglis of Law and District AAC was 34th. Esme Dougall of Giffnock took 44th and Maja Thomson of Team East Lothian was 49th.

Scotland U15 Boys had a top ten finisher thanks to a good run from Callum Dick of Giffnock North as he finished eighth.
Team East Lothian’s Fraser Lupton was next at 24th with Laurence Ward of Lasswade AAC at 34th. James Wotherspoon of Harmeny AC came home in 36th and Kieran Hardie of Harmeny was 38th.
Scotland U15 Girls also had a top ten finish via the performance of Zara Redmond of Kilbarchan in ninth place with Elsa McGregor of Edinburgh AC in 15th.
Scarlett Wilson of Giffnock North was 20th and Eilidh Dallas of Strathearn Harriers was 26th. Katie Woods of Shettleston was 61st.
Well done to Niamh Currie after she took first place in the U14 Wheelchair Race.
