PH Racing Club duo Karen Kennedy and Mary Western enjoyed yet more success on Saturday at the Scottish National Masters Cross Country Championships at Dean Castle Country Park, Kilmarnock, with Karen retaining her title with another gold medal, while Mary produced a strong performance to claim silver.

Competing over the challenging, undulating 6k course, Karen finished 1st in the over 45 category, and 6th overall, in a time of 26.38 to secure another Scottish Athletics gold medal. Mary continued her early season form by securing the silver medal in the over 55 category timing at 28.36. Alison Whyte also produced a strong performance finishing 7th in the over 45 category.

Other PH athletes in action were Ian Stewart, who finished 5th in an incredibly competitive over 60 category in 35.51, and Pete Simpson, who timed at 38.37 over the longer 8K mens course.

Well done to all competitors, volunteers and to the host club Kilmarnock Harriers for hosting another superb event.  Also thanks to Kenny Phillips for the race photos.
