The venue for the 2019 Masters Cross Country Championships was Hawick in the Scottish Borders. Athletes would have remembered the last visit to Hawick when a number of athletes were taken to hospital with exposure. With a cold but bright day there was no danger of this in 2019. Jethro Lennox was going for 3 in a row titles but the fast ,hard course did not suit Jethro and he had to settle for the bronze this year. He lead home a large group of Shettleston athletes who had made the journey to the Scottish Borders with team success in the form of a silver team medal in the M40 age group .The M50 -60 just missed out on a medal, finishing 4th .
M40 – 3rd Jethro Lennox, 11th Paul Sorrie, 17th Amanual Hagos, 21st Stephen Winters, 28th Mark McColl
M45 – 4th Kenny Richmond, 7th John Connaghan
M50 – 5th Walter Henderson, 19th John Duffy
M55 – 6th John Oates, 23rd Andrew Kirkhope
