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 Indoor League got off to an early season start this year with the first match taking place in October on a date which unfortunately coincided with the Scottish National Cross Country Relays. Nonetheless Ayr Seaforth fielded the best teams available on the day with most involved in the distance running section competing at Cumbernauld in the cross country. Although it is early days with 2 more matches to come in the New Year then hopefully a final to look forward to, some of the Seaforth teams are sitting nicely after Match 1. In these events the English Athletics grading system is used to gauge performance levels of exceptional standards and on the day U13 athlete Erin Ramsay gained 2 separate Graded performances. In the 200m she attained a Grade 1 performance with a time of 28.37s beating the Grade 1 qualification standard of 28.40s while in the 60m she attained a Grade 2 performance with a time of 8.69s beating the standard of 8.70s.

This is a team event with junior teams consisting of 3 athletes who each run over a 2500m course, teams are made up of an u13 who hands over to either another u13 or u15 who in turn hand over to either an u15 or u17. The Senior Women’s teams have 4 runners over a 4000m course with the Senior Men also having 4 athletes over a 4000m course.

First up on the day was the Young Females where Seaforth had a commendable 12th place finish with the team of Islay Hubbard (u13), Rosie Davidson (u15) and Charlotte McDowall (u17). The B Team of Claire McLaughlin (u13), Morven Hubbard (u15) and Evie Mackay (u15) finished in 30th place while the final complete Seaforth team of Emma McMillan (u13), Bethany Alexander (u15) and Isla Kirk (u150 were 62nd. The D Team consisted of a solo runner who was u13 athlete Tess Crooks. 

This was followed by the Young Males where the Seaforth A Team of Adam Currie (u13), Alex Crooks (u15) and Declan McGhee (u17) were 23rd, the B Team of Conor Scobie (u13), Euan Bell (u15) and Scott Sprang (u17) were 42nd followed by the C Team of Calum Hannah (u13), Blair Gemmell (u15) and Logan Cotter (u17) in 75th place. 

With no Senior Female teams being fielded it was the Senior Males who completed the days participation for Seaforth. A massive 88 complete teams finished the race with the Seaforth team of Kenny Neill, Stephen McCrorie, Brian Robinson and Grahame Hopper taking 36th place.

England Athletics U20/U23 Track & Field Championships 2017 – Bedford,England

This years England Athletics U20 & U23 Track and Field Championships took place at the Bedford International Athletics Stadium over the weekend of Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 June. Although the English Championships they are commonly seen as the British Age Group Championships and as such anyone taking home a medal can be extremely proud of their achievement.There were 3 athletes from Ayr Seaforth competing at this years event with first year U20 athlete Kirsten McClymont making her debut on the big stage in the 200m.

Conditions over the weekend were favourable for all but those competing in the distance events as the temperature on each day hit a blistering 31 degrees.

First up from the Ayr Seaforth contingent was Kirsten McClymont who ran in the first heat of the U20 Womens 200m with a time of 26.79s which was just outside her pb. The experience will no doubt bode her well for the future.

Next to compete was U23 athlete Carolyn Harvey who was competing in the Triple Jump. Carolyn jumped a distance of 11.79m which was enough to secure the bronze medal in the event.

The final Ayr athlete to enter competition was U20 distance runner Kirstin Oakley who was competing for the first time on UK soil in the 3000m steeplechase which she has been getting a taste for while competing in America. Although not a pb performance owing to the high temperatures her time of 11:11.76 safely saw her take the bronze medal.
