Scottish West District Cross Country Championships

12/12/2016

On 4th December, I headed to Ayr to compete in my first Scottish West District XC Champs since 2009.

I was excited to arrive at an undulated 6400m course that was soft underfoot - 6 races that took place before the senior women made sure this soon turned to mud!

After establishing an early lead, I opened up a gap in the first lap of the race. I then focused my efforts on continuing to extend this lead before crossing the finish line in 1st with a time of 25.44.

I really enjoyed competing in this race. The support from spectators around the course contributed to my performance and helped lift me towards the finishing straight. Fortunately I decide to tape my spikes to my feet for the race, as it wasn't long into my cool down that my trainer was pulled clean off my foot in the mud!

This race has now confirmed my qualification to represent the West District at the Inter Districts XC Champs in Edinburgh on 7th January.
