THIS year’s National Short Course Cross Country Championships took place at the new venue of Kirkcaldy High School.

As the title suggests these races are run over a shorter than normal cross country course with the U15 age groups taking on a 2000m course, the U17 running over a 3000m course and the U20/Seniors a 4000m course.

There were only a handful of Ayr Seaforth AC competitors who made the trip this year and the performance of the day was undoubtedly that of U15 Girl Rosie Davidson who took an impressive third place, despite not being 100% fit.

Results for Seaforth athletes were as follows:

U15 Girls – 3rd Rosie Davidson 7:01; 41st Morven Hubbard 7:58

U15 Boys – 57th Alex Crooks 7:08

U17 Men – 28th Scott Sprang 9:52; 38th Declan McGhee 10:01

Senior Women – 71st Susie Hubbard 16:30

U20/Senior Men – 95th place (31st U20) Lewis Ross 13:4; 298th (28th M45) Alasdair Meldrum 16:26.
