East District Cross Country Relays
Sunday 13th October 2013, Deans, Livingston
Livingston was the destination for the beginning of the cross country season and the first event on the calendar the cross country relays. Teviotdale had runners in all categories on this bright but blustery afternoon. A kite being flown on the sidelines gave the competitors a glimpse of the weather to greet them on the course.

Running the u13 leg were Carly Blaikie in 12.05 and Connie Lothian in 12.11, u15 leg Emma Grieve in 12.23 and u17 leg Ishbel Inglis in 11.11. In the same category and distance for the boys Fraser Clyne ran the u13 leg in 9.52, Jamie Waugh the u15 leg in 11.37 and Harry Marshall u17 leg in 9.50.
