National CC Relays

Cumbernauld

Saturday 26th October 2013

 

Falkirk Victoria Harriers Masters Women's team were awarded Silver medals for their performance at the National Cross Country Relays in Cumbernauld on Saturday 26th October following a close competition. Gala Harriers took the title by the slim margin of eight seconds.

Beryl Junnier took the first lap of the tough course, battling adverse cambers and tight turns to register a time of 16:49 before handing over to Nicola Flynn. Nicola managed to maintain the team’s position as she passed to Fiona Matheson who produced one of the fastest times of the day, gaining 9 places. The team finished 23rd out of 62 overall – ahead of the two other FVH Senior Women’s teams - and 2nd place in their Masters category. This is the second cross country medal for the trio this season.

Earlier in the day the Young Females team took part in a race covering all ages from U13 to U17. Young U13 Chloe McClung ran the first leg against what is typically one of the fastest members of opposing teams. Chloe held her own, passing over to Jessica Christie who had the unfortunate task of running against older U15s. Nevertheless, she produced a fantastic performance to gain 6 places and finish 15th fastest U13 girl of the day. Final hand over was to Julie Nimmo in the U17 leg, who matched this to help the team finish 27th overall.

The three complete Men’s teams all produced good individual performances, with four runners even producing sub-14 minute times for the undulating 4k course. They achieved placings of 19th, 42nd and 92nd.
