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.

West District Cross Country Championships – Mosshill, Ayr – Sunday 4 December 2016

Sunday saw this years West District Cross Country Championships take place at the site of the old Digital factory at Mosshill, Ayr as it was hosted by Ayr Seaforth. This was the first time Seaforth had hosted such an event and the club are very grateful to have been given the opportunity to host such a prestigious event on our home turf. Indeed it would not have been possible without the assistance of Centaur Properties who operate the facility and gave their kind permission to use the land as well as the Aberlour Child Care Trust who allowed the use of their premises for changing and administration purposes. A mention of gratitude must also go to South Ayrshire Council for their assistance in particular the staff at Dam Park Stadium.

A very tough course was designed for the event which proved a real test for all age groups as it should at a major Championship. Conditions on the day initially seemed firm underfoot but as the glorious sunshine broke through the early morning frost several parts of the course became quite soft which when mixed with the long undulating slopes made for a real test of fitness and determination.

A total of just short of 800 competitors took part  and once again there were some notable performances amongst the junior athletes from Seaforth.

First up were the U13Girls followed by the U13 Boys who each ran over a 3200m course. In the girls it was Morven Hubbard who led the way coming home in 6th position with a time of 12:38 followed by Tess Crooks (28th) 13:50 while in the boys race first Seaforth athlete home was the brother of Tess, Alex Crooks (7th) 11:53 who was followed by Euan Bell (16th) 12:37 and Sam Drummond (36th) 13:23 with the boys team coming 4th in the team competition.

The U15 Girls and then U15 Boys were next covering a 4000m course. In the girls race the best Seaforth finish of the day went to Rosie Davidson (5th) who covered the course in a time of 15:59 with team mates Isla Kirk (22nd) 17:27 & Charlotte McDowall (46th) 19:03 taking 5th team place. The boys race saw Scott Sprang (15th) 15:39 , Logan Cotter (22nd) 16:08 & Patrick Smiley (47th) 17:34 take the team 7th place.

The U17 & U20 Women then ran together over a 5000m course with sole Seaforth U17 athlete Caitlin Chilton take 20th place in a time of 28:41.

The Senior Women were next in a race that covered a distance of 6400m. Laura Wallace led the way with a 9th place finish in 27:45 followed by Ruth Kirk (73rd) 34:53 & Abby Cunningham (114th) 41:11.

The U17 & U20 Men set off together although the former had 6400m to cover while the latter had 8000m. The U17 race saw Lewis Ross lead the way in 19th (25:33) with Declan McGhee (25th) 26:40 and Aidan Copland (27th) 27:09 close behind. In the U20 Mens race sole Seaforth entrant Fraser Stirling finished in a very creditable 7th place with a time of 28:43.

As is usual the final race of the day was the Senior Men who had a 10,000m 4 lap race ahead of them. Several Seaforth athletes were involved in this race with Kenny Neill (36th) 39:24 the first home in a massive field of 251 runners. Other Seaforth positions were Craig Brown (164th) 47:21, Iain Pettigrew (185th) 49:07, Ian Young (191st) 49:38, Andy Crichton (197th) 50:18, Peter Laing (215th) 52:47, John Hannah (217th) 53:11, Stuart McColm (227th) 54:23 and Tim Downie (233rd) 55:36.

The first race of the day was the combined U11 boys & girls race which was over a 1.9km course. In the U11 boys category young Brodie McGregor who was making his first trip to the event put all his hard training to good use finishing in 19th place from a field of 70 with a time of 7:53, in the U11 girls race Iona Hubbard also acquitted herself very well with an excellent 16th place finish from a field of 84 finishers in a time of 7:59.

Next up it was the turn of the U13 girls and then boys who each ran over a 3km course. The best finish of the day went to Morven Hubbard who claimed 10th place in a time of 11:25 followed by younger sister Islay who was 78th in 13:08 with 147 competing this race. The boys race saw 162 athletes fight it out with Alex Crooks coming 25th in 11:05 followed by Euan Bell (49th) 11:27 & Sam Drummond (97th) 12:34.

The U15 boys were followed by the U15 girls who each ran over the same 3km course as the U13 age group. Of the 139 runners in the boys race Scott Sprang (48th) in 10:34 was followed by team mate Greig Oakley (111th) in 11:58. The U15 girls had 126 competitors and saw Rosie Davidson claim 26th in 11:21 followed by Emma Frew who was 41st in 11:40.

The U17 Women ran next over a 4.4km course and were followed by the U17 men who had a 5.5km course to negotiate. In the womens race it was Caitlin Chilton who represented Seaforth coming home in 76th position in a time of 20:37 and Lewis Ross in the mens race finished in 77th place with a time of 19:16.

With competition for Seaforth athletes over after the U17 age groups everyone was then able to watch some top class competition in the senior races with Scottish Olympic athletes Andrew Butchart & Calum Hawkins on view in a race which was won by Butchart.

National Cross Country Relays – Cumbernauld – Saturday 22 October 2016

This years Scottish National Cross Country Relays took place on Saturday at Cumbernauld which has been the venue for the last 15 years. Record numbers of athletes entered this years competition and Seaforth had a healthy contingent participating with no less than 4 girls teams, 6 boys teams and 4 senior mens teams. This is a course which doesn’t need much encouragement to become extremely muddy but thankfully with the recent dry weather it was in the main fairly dry underfoot with only a section at the top of the course still quite soft. Those who competed the senior mens race now have the privilege of saying they ran against 2 Scottish Olympians as both Callum Hawkins & Andrew Butchart competed for their clubs with Hawkins running the hilly 4k course in an outstanding time of 11.01.

The format for the Junior male & female races is 3 laps of the 2500m course with the first athlete being u13, the next either u13 or u15 and the final athlete being either u15 or u17. The senior men race was contested by teams of 4 athletes each covering a 4000m course.

Ayrshire Cross Country Relays 2016

This years Ayrshire Cross Country Relay Championships took place at Kilmarnock on Saturday on a course that is traditionally wet & muddy but this year was unusually extremely dry. Conditions on the day were very good for running with it being overcast and no wind at all.

Given this event takes place during the school holidays it is somewhat difficult to muster teams but Seaforth were still well represented. There were victories in 2 of the male age categories and 4 of the female with Seaforth U11 girls actually claiming a 1, 2, 3.

Next up on the cross country calendar is the National XC Relay Championships which take place next weekend at the traditional setting of Cumbernauld Park, Cumbernauld. This is a course which even in the driest of weather seems to hold wet conditions and will be a totally different challenge from the Ayrshire races. Seaforth have a large contingent heading to this meeting with 19 Junior teams entered and 5 Senior teams.

Full results for Ayr Seaforth at yesterdays meeting are shown in the tables below.
