National Cross Country Relays

National Cross Country Relays
This event was held on Saturday 25th October 2014 in the park surrounding Cumbernauld House.  The prevailing weather condition of the day was heavy rain with more heavy rain.  Sunshine was in very short supply though hills and mud were in abundance.
The event was well attended by VP-Glasgow athletes with a total of 12 teams competing across all the age groups.
Most successful VPG team of the day was our Young Female team which came 4th.  It consisted of Lily Jane Evans-Haggerty (5th) in a time of 10.52s, Holly Little (14th) in a time of 11.31s and Gillian Black (3rd) in a time of 10.22s.  (Individual positions in brackets.)
Very well done to all our athletes who competed in such wet weather.
