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.
