Hill runners dominate at Scottish XC
With hill and mountain runners filling 4 of the first 6 spots in the senior men’s race at at this weekend’s Scottish National XC, it was plain to see that those who like it hilly still have plenty of leg speed when it comes to the flatter stuff…
Wegene Tafese and Beth Potter took the senior honours, with Ethiopian Tafese pulling away from top GB athletes Robbie Simpson and Joe Symonds, who completed the podium. Murray Strain also faired well with a 6th place finish.
In the women’s race HBT’s Rosie Smith placed an excellent second behind Potter, with Susan Partridge in third. Cat Buchanan and Tessa Hill also ran strongly finishing well inside the top 20.
