Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds lead the Cross Country Team Challenge for women ahead of Kirkcaldy
Kirkcaldy High School is the next venue on the Lindsays Cross Country season calendar – with the Short Course Champs coming up on Saturday 11 November.
It’s a new location for 2017 with the courses at Kirkcaldy High School having been used for many years to stage Scottish Primary School cross country championship races.
Now we have just over 1200 athletes signed up for six races next weekend as U17 and U15 athletes contest individual and team medals as well as the 4K races for U20/Senior/Masters athletes which have become hugely-popular over the past couple of years.
Once again we are asking clubs and athletes to check the Kirkcaldy start-lists and update lapsed memberships in order to be eligible to run. This system worked well ahead of Cumbernauld and the Lindsays XC National Relays – thanks.
Meanwhile, the Lindsays Short Course XC races at senior level at Kirkcaldy will mark the conclusion of the Cross Country Team Challenge for the 2017 season.
Clubs contest this event over three fixtures with points awarded for places in the Senior Men’s and Senior Women’s race at the District XC Relays; the Lindsays National XC Relays and the Short Course.
Inverclyde AC and Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds each landed the maximum 20 points following their gold medal successes at Cumbernauld.
But Aberdeen AAC actually top the men’s table with 28 points – as four clubs are blanketed by only two points; with Inverclyde on 27 and Central AC and Corstorphine AAC on 26.
Edinburgh Uni do lead the women’s table with 30 points but that could still turn around at Kirkcaldy with Central AC on 28 and Kilbarchan AAC on 27.
The two winning clubs will each land £250. There is more detail on the Cross Country Team Challenge on the dedicated page
