The first East District Cross Country League fixture took place at Stirling University on Saturday.

Fife AC enjoyed its best overall result in years with some impressive individual performances and five of its teams placing in the top three.

The junior boys backed up their excellent results at last week’s East District Cross Country Relays with a strong series of team performances and stand out individual runs from Logan Rees, Adam Scott and Finlay Sey.

The team performance of the day came courtesy of the U15 boys’ team of Adam Scott in second and brothers Tristan Rees in fourth and George Rees in ninth, who easily lead the team rankings.

The U11 boys’ team led by Finlay Sey in fourth also won, while the U13 boys’ team led by Craig Morris in 13th were third and the U17 boys’ team led by Logan Rees in third were fourth.

In the senior men and U20 men’s combined race, Bruce Millar brought the team home when placing 17th overall and fourth junior.

The stand out performance from the junior girls was Scottish junior hill running international Ailsa Cruickshanks who placed third in the u17 race.

In the senior women and U20 women’s combined race, newly crowned Scottish marathon champion Megan Crawford stepped down in distance, finishing the 6km course in second place. The team of Megan, Amie McKimmie in 18th and Jennifer Cruickshanks in 19th were second team.

At the Aviemore Half Marathon, Sheena Logan was first female and eighth overall in a huge personal best time of 1 hour 21 minutes 13 seconds.

Fife AC are holding a Halloween Novice 2 mile run, junior 2 mile run and children’s 1km races at Cairnie Fruit Farm near Cupar next Wednesday.
