Fife AC’s Angela Richardson will collect £750 in prize-money after success in the Scottish Athletics Cross Country Grand Prix.

The St Andrews athlete took the women’s overall prize following the six-race series which included the national events as well as the British Cross Challenge races in Liverpool and Birmingham.

It was a top class field the local athlete was up against, making her achievement all the more impressive

Richardson amassed a tally of 129 points in the Women’s table – competing in five of the six events, missing only Liverpool.

The Fife athlete won by 13 points from 2012 Olympian Freya Ross (Edinburgh AC) on 116 with GB internationalist Rosie Smith (Hunters Bog Trotters) third on 110.

National Cross-Country winner Andrew Butchart (Central AC) landed the men’s prize of £750 while Alex Hendry made it a Central AC 1-2 with 180 points (£400) and Aberdeen AAC’s Michael Ferguson took third place to pick up £250.
