Reuben MacDonald Centre with Silver Medal for Tinto
Giffnock athletes enjoyed a good day at the Scottish Primary Schools XC Championships in Kirkcaldy last Saturday 22nd April when turning out for their schools at this event , traditionally the late and the last XC of the Season. This event is so large that it requires 2 races in each age group and gender with Schools arranged in Alphabetical order A-M and L-Z.
Dilemmas and choices re running XC for school and participating at the Scottish Relay championships made it difficult probably for many of our super talented athletes with a rare clash this year. But out athletes had Teams and Individual success in Kirkcaldy . A Gold and Two Silvers for Teams and a 2nd and 3rd Individual Places.
