THE SCOTTISH Athletics East District Cross Country relays took place in Galashiels on Saturday.

Lasswade AC took the senior women’s gold medals thanks to the trio of Amy Smith, Sarah Tait and Amy Frankland.

Tait’s second leg run was influential in Lasswade’s win and her time of 15:12 over a hilly course at Gala Academy was enough to take the fastest lap title by two seconds from Holly Page (EU Hare and Hounds).

Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds took the silver and bronze medals in that race with the surprise being that it was their ‘C’ team who were second with the ‘A’ team in third.

Just for good measure, the students from Edinburgh were also fourth and fifth in an impressive collective performance for the Hare and Hounds.

Central won the men’s race thanks to the efforts of Calum Phillip, Ben Macmillan, Luca Fonottoli and Hamish Hickey.

Edinburgh Uni were second here, too, with Aberdeen AAC coming home third for the bronzes. Corstorphine AAC’s Tom Martyn was fastest with 13:06.

Harmeny AC won the young males' race from Team East Lothian with Falkirk Victoria Harriers in third.

Team East Lothian won the young females category to complete a good day for their junior division, while Edinburgh AC took home the silvers with Falkirk Victoria Harriers third here also.

Corstorphine AC won the Vets with Gala in second place and Edinburgh AC in third.
