Thanks to all involved in lifts and to the parents for the well before 6am rises for their little cubs! Juniors were once again mixing it with the stars judging from their earlier posts!

Good to see the North runners represented well (Grace Whelan, Lauren McCulloch, Emma Dunnett, Rhiannon Kirk, Oonagh Dunnett, Connor MacLean (won U20’s) and Eoghan MacNamara) and for making the long trip down or the short hop from their adopted homes in the big smoke!

See you all next year, hopefully again at Renfrew!
