Report by Claire McGillivray
It was a snowy day (similar to last year) for the XC event at Jackton, East Kilbride on Saturday 16th January. Fortunately the great indoor facility kept everyone undercover before races commenced.
A great turn out for Giffnock North with 20 under 11’s taking part! Conditions were pretty difficult under foot making a sprint finish more challenging than normal.
Rueben MacDonald ran a great 1km race for the boys finishing 2nd place (2.54) behind a strong East Kilbride runner. Hugh Shiels was 3rd (3.01) and Aaron McGillivray was 6th (3.03) with these three boys achieving team gold for Giffnock North!
In the girls race Eva Chong took 6th place (3.23) and with Ellie Wallace and Emma McLennan took the Silver Team medals .
Well done to all the runners and supporters turning up in the snow
