Sunday saw the club heading to Hamilton Race Course for the West District Cross Country Relay Championships. Hamilton has a special place in the history of Cross Country with this being the venue for the 1st World Championships in 1903 so it was great to continue a great tradition at the venue.

Next up was Kasey Fraser and Gregor Campbell with James Burns (7th fastest on the day) bring in the A Team in 7th place. Lewis Raeburn building on his recent form brought his team into 13th place recording the 2nd fastest of the day in the boys event.

Charlene Marley, Avril Mason and Ruth Joss had the team performance of the day when they picked up the bronze medals. Ruth Joss had a great last leg pulling the team into the medal position and recording the 8th fastest time of the day. The B team of Oonagh Dunnett, Emma Dunnett and Rhona Galloway finished 17th.
