“All credit to ev­ery­one who man­aged to com­plete the course in the very test­ing, muddy con­di­tions, which was not sur­pris­ing given the ex­ces­sive amount of rain­fall in the pre­vi­ous 24 hours.

“There were many ex­cel­lent per­for­mances.

“Many thanks to the coaches, club mem­bers and par­ents who sup­ported and cheered on our ath­letes.

“The club should be well rep­re­sented af­ter to­day’s per­for­mances at the forth­com­ing inter- dis­trict event at Ed­in­burgh in the new year.”
