Cross Country GP titles – and £4000 prize-money – on line at Falkirk

Monday 20th February 2023

The Lindsays National XC is fast approaching this Saturday (February 25).

And as well as coveted medals being up for grabs for teams and for individuals, the Senior races also mark the conclusion of our Scottish Cross Country Grand Prix, with £4000 of prize-money to be shared by athletes (men and women).

This year’s GP is across four events all taking place in Scotland and the British Cross Challenge and Scottish Inter-District XC at Scone Palace in January marked the third fixture.

The Scone Palace race points have been allocated there are new leaders with only Falkirk remaining.

Megan Keith leads the Women’s division after amassing 100 points from wins at Kirkcaldy and Perth.

Fellow Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds athlete, Constance Nankivell, is now second on 79 points with Carnethy’s Holly Page only two points behind in third.

Completing the top five are Alice Goodall of Edinburgh AC in fourth (66 points) and Sarah Tait of Lasswade AC/Stirling Uni (63 points).

With Megan understood to have headed to New Zealand after racing at the World Cross in Bathurst, opportunity knocks this weekend for a GP victory for some of those mentioned above.

Central AC athlete Hamish Hickey now leads the Men’s table with 95 points.

It’s tight at the top, though, with Kristian Jones of Dundee Hawkhill Harriers only two points adrift and third-placed Callum Tharme of Strathclyde Uni on 88 points.

Completing the top five are Ben MacMillan of Central AC in fourth (84 points) and Lachlan Oates of Shettleston Harriers (79 points).
