Saturday 11th January saw some extremely difficult conditions for the Home Counties Cross Country International at Kings Park, Stirling, an event which also incorporated the Scottish Inter-District Championships
and the 4th round of the British Athletics Cross Challenge.
Representing Scotland West as a member of Bellahouston RR, for whom she runs in Scotland, was Morpeth’s Cat Macdonald, who has been having a fine season over the mud already this Winter.
Having led the club’s Senior Women to a team victory at Temple Park last weekend after finishing in 3rd place at the North East Championships at Alnwick before Christmas, Macdonald once again showed her appetite for challenging off road conditions when finishing in a commendable 29th place.
She was also 3rd counter for the Scotland West team.
Cat was 7th in the Inter Counties and picked up a team silver as a counter for the Scotland West team,
Two other Morpeth Harriers were also in action. Joe Dixon had a strong run to finish in 5th place and only some 13 seconds off a podium place in the Under 15 boys. Dan Melling ran in the U/20 men and was 30th overall.
