Scottish National Cross Country Championships – Saturday 25 February 2017 – Callendar Park,Falkirk

This years Scottish National Cross Country Championships took place yesterday at an incredibly muddy Callendar Park in Falkirk. Heavy overnight rain had saturated the course making it a true test of cross country running with the course holding so much water that the venue owners actually considered cancelling the Championships on the morning of the event. Fortunately they agreed to a move of both the start and finish areas which allowed it to take place.The area immediately in front of Callendar House where the finish area is usually positioned was flooded with about a foot of water lying which made for a makeshift bathing area for athletes washing themselves down after racing.This year saw yet another record amount of entries with no fewer than 2330 entered. Performance of the day for Seaforth was the 5th place finish of Morven Hubbard in the U13 girls which was closely followed by U15 girl Rosie Davidson who came home in 7th place.

The Senior Men had once again the opportunity to compete against Olympian Callum Hawkins who set out his stall early in the race and claimed his second National title.
