The series was across three of the shorter events in the cross country season and a team competition at senior level with points totted up from district relay championships as well as the national championships at Cumbernauld and the short course (4,000 metres) cross country championships in Lanark.

Central AC took the top place in the men’s table with 47 points from Shettleston Harriers on 44 and Inverclyde AC on 41.

On the women’s side, Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds took maximum points with 50 to win from Kilbarchan AAC on 47 and third placed Victoria Park Glasgow on 45. Edinburgh AC (42) and Central AC (40) completed the top five.

There’s £4,000 up for grabs in the Scottish Athletics Cross Country Grand Prix over six events this winter. Two have been completed following Lanark and the recent British Cross Challenge event at Liverpool and the third event is fast approaching at the Lindsays District Cross Country Championships.

Morag Millar of Central AC and Steph Pennycook of Fife AC and Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds share the lead in the women’s points table at the moment, both on 79.
