This years National Short Course XC moved to a new venue at Lanark Race Course. This is a cross country race which is run over a much shorter distance than usual making it something of a cross country sprint. It is limited to age groups of U15 and above with the U15 racing over a 2km course, U17 over a 3km course and the U20/Senior over a 4km course. In the U15 Girls race Morven Hubbard took 36th place with sister Islay Hubbard taking 61st place. In the U15 Boys race Alex Crooks completed the course in 24th place with Fergus Muir in 106th. The U17 Women saw the performance of the day from Seaforth with Rosie Davidson (5th place), Emma Frew (13th place) and Evie Mackay (46th place) giving them the team Bronze medal. With there being no U17 men competing from Seaforth on the day it was then the turn of the Seniors. In the Senior Women it was Toni McIntosh who led the way finishing in 22nd place followed by Nicola Dunn in 64th place from a field of 206 competitors. The Senior Men completed the days competition with Grahame Hopper in 170th place, Alasdair Meldrum 268th, Simon Kirk 304th, Craig Brown 309th and Tim Downie 416th.
