A bright sunny afternoon for the Scottish Athletics 4k Cross Country at Bellahouston Park. The men's race was won by Dan Mulhare of Inverclyde, followed by the trio of Shettleston Eritrean athletes: Tewoldeberhan Mengisteab, Tsegezab Woldemichael and Tsegai Tewelde.

The women's race was battled out by Elspeth Curran (Kilbarchan) and Sarah Inglis (Lothian) on Lap 1, but Elspeth pulled clear on Lap 2 to prove a clear winner. Sarah faded in the final kilometre to finish 5th, whilst Jennifer MacLean (Edinburgh AC) paced herself well to finish 2nd, just ahead of Rosie Smith (HBT) in 3rd place.

Thanks John! I was pleased to get a few decent snaps, mostly down to the good light, and the new 18-200mm lens. This time I switched on the VR (vibration reduction), and went for the lazy "Sports" mode, rather than battling with the A/S/P modes that just confuse me.
