The West District Relays mark the official opening of the cross country season.
Over recent years, these relays have been held at Irvine Academy, so it was a nice change to have them much closer to Glasgow at the Strathclyde Uni Sports Ground at Stepps.
On a warm sunny afternoon we managed to field 2 teams, with Ellie, Christine and Deborah running for the women, and David Riach, myself, Steven Grant and Don running for the men's team.
I clocked 13:41 for the 3.8km course on the 2nd Leg. I set off one place behind Stevie McLoone, but dropped a place to Bryan Lamb (not John Hagemeister!) of Bellahouston Harrier, and didn't really make any ground on Stevie.
The women's race was won by Springburn Harriers with (I think) Danielle Brown overhauling Leanne Hamilton of Kilbarchan on the 3rd Leg.
Shettleston won the men's race by some considerable margin with Paul Sorrie and the Eritreans.
