Megan selected for national service

St Andrews’ Megan Crawford has joined only a handful of Fife AC athletes to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The local racer recently made her debut for her country at the European Hill Running Championships in Gap, France.

Megan, coached by Ron Morrison, finished in 29th place and was part of the silver medal winning British senior women’s team.

At the British Milers Club Grand Prix in Stretford, Jenny Tan competed in her first 1500m for eight years.

Jenny gradually made her way through the field to come second in the ‘A’ race in a personal best of 4.20.26.

In beautiful conditions last Wednesday, Fife AC hosted the Newburgh Multi Terrain race.

The race was won by Kenneth Anderson in 23.59, while brothers Jamie and Fergus Ingledew both ran well to complete the top three.

Jamie, who was part of Fife AC’s multiple gold medal winning U15 boys team over the winter, finished in an impressive second place just two seconds behind the winner.

Older brother Fergus finished in third place in 25.04.

First female was St Andrews University student Angela Richardson in 27.16.

Completing the female top three were Fife AC’s Amie McKimmie in second in 28.20 and Dundee Road Runners’ Rosie Doull in third in 28.29.
