Kilmarnock Cross Country 9th November

Six Tortoises braved the mud on Sunday afternoon to run the Kilmarnock Cross Country race, the afternoon could not have been more different to the weather on Saturday night which made the course very muddy and wet, which in turn made some parts of the run a real slog.

Results are on the ‘results tab’ and now we move onto Irvine beach park this Saturday the 15th November, all members are welcome though you will need a Scottish Athletics membership number, see George for more details.
