Welcome the World Relay

As part of the recent World Cross Country Championships held in Edinburgh's Holyrood Park, a sole team from FVH entered the Welcome the World multi terrain Relay event on the Saturday before the main event. The girls Catherine Mitchell, Amy Manson and Caitlin Thomson were competing in a combined road, hill and cross country run.

Amy led the girls off on the road leg and passed on to Catherine, who had to run the famous Haggis Knowe hill before, passing on to Caitlin for the cross country section.

The girls finished a creditable 11th place just behind Team Raven, a specially selected squad of the 3 fastest girls in the age group.

Afterwards the girls were rewarded with a few words from RAVEN himself.
