Weekend Round-up: Euro Club Cross and action in America

Monday 6th February 2023

Central AC and Shettleston Harriers were in action at the European Clubs Cross Country Champs in Spain.

Strong fields in both races made it a significant challenge and it was great to see eight Scots compete at international level cross country via these representative appearances for their clubs.

Central AC men have competed at this event and could be satisfied with 12th place from a race which featured 26 clubs.

Hamish Hickey was best placed for Derek Easton’s squad as he finished 29th with Jamie Crowe in 37 place, Luca Fanottoli 53 and Calum Phillip 58.

Shettleston Harriers women competed for the very first time and thoroughly enjoyed their experience as they finished 20.

Hannah Terrance was first home in 60th place and was support by Aoife Carr at 61, Ruth Joss 63 and Avril Mason 84.

Well done to both clubs and the athletes and coaches involved at Oropresa del Mar.

A number of top Scots were competing in Boston at the New Balance Indoor GP.

And there were fine event victories for Neil Gourley in the mile and Laura Muir in the 3000m.

Neil’s run of 3:52.84 takes him second on the Scottish all-time list (behind Josh Kerr). Laura clocked 8:40.34 to lead home a British 1-2-3-4 in that race.

Jemma Reekie finished the mile event in sixth place in 4:238.49 and Lynsey Sharp was seventh in the 800m in 2:05.60.

Team East Lothian youngster Corey Campbell made the trip to America to race in an U20 Mile event and Corey’s 4:08.16 is second on the Scottish all-time list. And Corey’s 1500m split (3:51.39) gives him a Commonwealth Youth Games standard.
