U12 Superteams – Emirates Arena, Glasgow – Sunday 11th February 2018

This years indoor U12 Superteams Championships took place last Sunday at The Emirates Arena, Glasgow and as usual proved to be one of the most popular events on the athletics calendar. The competition comprises of teams of 4 athletes each of whom takes part in a 60m race, a shot putt, a long jump and then a 4x200m relay which although ran as boys & girls races are scored as a single competition. With the vast numbers of teams wanting to compete each club is strictly limited to having 2 boys teams and 2 girls teams take part. Of the 57 girls teams competing on the day the Ayr Seaforth Girls ‘B’ Team finished 28th and the ‘A’ Team were 31st. In the boys competition there were 46 teams and the Boys ‘A’ Team were 12th while the ‘B’ Team were 14th.

There was however a highlight on the day as U11 athlete Nathan Scott broke the club record for 60m with an excellent time of 9.43s. Well done Nathan from everyone at Ayr Seaforth.

This years National Indoor Relay Championships took place yesterday at The Emirates Arena, Glasgow with Seaforth having teams in all age groups competing.The races comprise of teams of 4 each covering the 200m track once before handing over the baton to the next competitor. In the U13,U15 & U17 age groups all heats and semi-finals were run on the day with those qualifying for the final competing alongside numerous International stars in the British Athletics Muller Grand Prix event on Sunday 25 February while the U20 finals were held yesterday.  

In the U13 Girls the team of Jenna Beswick, Libby White, Eve Beswick & Erin Ramsay took not only 1st place in their heat but 1st place overall in the heats to qualify for the semi-final with a time of 1:57.18. In their semi-final the girls again won their heat with a time of 1:56.51 which sees them comfortably through to the final in 2nd place. This time constitutes a new club record so well done girls.

The U13 Boys team of Ti Wilson, James LeRoux, Alfie Murphy & Ben Edwards qualifies for the finals as 3rd place in heat 1 and 6th place overall in a time of 2:06.20.

The U15 Girls team of Amy McCann, Imogen Tribe, Fay McTrusty & Rosie Morrison qualified for the semi-finals as 2nd place in their heat and 7th overall in a time of 1:58.05. Unfortunately in that semi-final their time of 1:59.85 was 7th fastest overall so they missed out by a single place on a final appearance.

With no U15 Boys team it was the turn of the U17 Womens team of Bethany Haugh, Matilda Press, Gemma Bruce & Sophie Slider who qualified for their final in 2nd place from their heat and 6th overall in a time of 1:48.86.

The Senior Womens team of Kirsten McClymont, Jamie Hood, Katie McAlpine & Nadia Simpson qualified for their final in 1st place from their heat in a time of 1:46.90. In their final which was held later in the day they again ran in to 2nd place taking the silver medal in a time of 1:45.46 which was yet another new club record so congratulations again ladies.

Great Edinburgh Run & Inter District XC 2018 – Holyrood Park, edinburgh

Last weekend saw the Great Edinburgh Run and Inter District Cross Country take place at Holyrood Park, Edinburgh for perhaps the last time as Edinburgh City Council are withdrawing funding for the event. In the Great Edinburgh Junior Run Ayr Seaforth U13 athlete Iona Hubbard had a fantastic run to take 3rd place in a time of 10:23. Shortly after the road races the Inter District Cross Country races along with the various International Cross Country races took place. Those chosen for the Inter District races were selected based on their performances during the current cross country season particularly their finishing positions in the recent District Cross Country Championships. Selected for Team West in the U13 Girls race was the Islay Hubbard who is the sister of Iona Hubbard and in the U15 race Rosie Davidson represented Team West. Islay Hubbard came home in 32nd place with a time of 13:20 for the 3000m race while Rosie Davidson followed up on her recent Scottish selection with an excellent 7th place in 15:52 over a 4000m course. Well done to all girls from everyone at Ayr Seaforth.

Celtic Nations Cross Country – Antrim, NI – Saturday 6 January 2018

Last weekend saw Seaforth U15 athlete Rosie Davidson compete for Team Scotland in this years Celtic Cross Country Championships which took place at Greenmount Campus, Antrim, Northern Ireland. The event was integrated into the latest leg of the British Cross Country Challenge with International teams representing Ireland, Northern Ireland & Ulster, Wales and Scotland competing alongside many club athletes competing individually in their respective age group races. Rosie was selected after her excellent silver medal run at the West District Cross Country Championships which took place at Irvine last month. With there being no U15 age group for the International teams Rosie was selected for the U17 age group which meant a step up in competition for her which she took in her stride. After a tough 3600m race with the U17 & U20 women running together Rosie came home as 7th U17 in a time of 15.05 with the Scottish U17 team taking first place. Congratulations to Rosie from all at Ayr Seaforth.

British Cross Challenge – Liverpool – Saturday 25 November 2017

A smaller contingent than that of recent years represented Ayr Seaforth at this years Liverpool leg of the British Cross Challenge which took place as usual at Sefton Park in Liverpool. This is a series of races at different venues in England, Wales & Ireland with the Liverpool race also doubling as the European Cross Country Trials for those in the older age groups. Those younger athletes competing gain valuable experience of participation in a much larger field with several thousand spectators watching them and they also get to rub shoulders with the sports elite.

The U11 races are over a 1900m course and in the U11 Boys Fraser McIntyre came home in 59th place (8:23) while in the U11 Girls race Iona Hubbard had a remarkable run to take 6th place in 8:15.

The U13 age group took on a 3000m course with Brodie McGregor taking 57th in the boys with a time of 12:26 and in the girls race Islay Hubbard finished in a creditable 19th (12:23) with Julie Dunn 92nd (14:01).

The U15 age group covered the same 3000m course where Alex Crooks and Euan Bell took 89th (11:26) and 101st (11:39) respectively. In the girls race there was a fantastic effort from Rosie Davidson who finished in an excellent 8th (11:22) while Morven Hubbard was 47th (12:36).

The final representative for Seaforth on the day was in the U17 Mens race which was over a 5500m course, Scott Sprang claiming 68th (20:17).

Ayrshire Cross Country Championships – Rozelle,Ayr – Saturday 25 November 2017

This years Ayrshire Cross Country Championships took place on Saturday at a very muddy and cold Rozelle Park, Ayr. While quite a low key event it is a great way for those younger athletes to get a grounding in the sport. There were several individual as well as team medals won by Seaforth with the U11 Boys team taking Gold, the U13 Boys team taking Silver, the U13 Girls team taking Silver, the Senior Mens team taking Silver and the Senior Womens team taking Gold.
