Jog Scotland Xmas Cracker 5K, Strathclyde Park.

On Sunday Mike and I dug out the Santa Hats and made our now annual pilgrimage to Strathclyde Park to run the Jog Scotland Xmas Cracker 5K. There were the usual assortment of Santa's, Elves, Reindeer and even a couple of Scooby Doo's, last years winner Peter Parker (Aka Spider Man) was conspicuous by his absence, he must have heard that Mike and I were on our way and fled in terror.


We travelled West to Livingston a long standing venue for East District Cross Countrys for the 2009/10 Championships. CAAC was well represented and was ensured a solid physical presence with the foresight by Stevio to bring the CAAC Cave.

Easy as 1,2,3 for CAAC at Lauder.

Another great attendance by the club at the second Border XC down at Lauder today. Conditions were very tough going. Windy, rainy and very muddy underfoot. Everyone done well and the clubs top 3 counters coming in position 1,2,3 (Dave S, Keith H and CoB) was fantastic. I think everyone enjoyed the challenging condition today judging the smiles on peoples faces at the end. However those were quickly washed away as we all jumped in the burn to wash the mud away after the race, brrrrrrr. We headed up to the Lauderdale Hotel for a nice warm coffee (pint of Tennants for Susan) and some soup.
