East League XC – Alloa

Karla Borland Mairi Blankenstein Alloa XCEdinburgh AC sit top of the East District XC League all-age group women’s rankings and second in the men’s rankings after a strong performance at Alloa on Saturday.

Following the heavy rain overnight, the athletes found it hard going. Nicholas Wolverson, running in the senior men’s race, summed up the conditions :”A jog around the course made it clear this was not a flat quick grassy affair. Flat mud, hilly mud, big sloppy puddles of mud…”

53 EAC athletes from U11 to Masters got stuck in – some having an unexpected ‘swim’ as the slippery conditions caught them out!

There were team wins for our U11 girls, U13 girls and U13 boys with the U11 boys, U15 boys, U15/U17 girls, U17 men and Senior women all finishing in the top three. Joe Arthur ran outstandingly to win the U17 men’s race, seven seconds clear of the field, to follow up his 2nd place at the opening round in Stirling.

The next and final round of the East League will take place in Broxburn on the 17th of January.
