Anna 1 Under 17

Edinburgh, Lothian, Scotland

Star runner for Forres Harriers and indeed the North District squad must go to Anna MacFadyen running in the under 17 girls event of the Inter District Championships over the 4km course.  In the same race were the under 20 interdistrict ladies, the under 20 and under 17 Celtic nations squads from Ireland, Scotland and Wales and the under 20 ladies GBR, USA and European team clash.  In the overall race Anna came in 19th place which probably sounds fairly average but that was ahead of two under 20 International runners from Europe and the USA, she was also ahead of all the under 20 interdistrict ladies and all the under 17 interdistrict girls save for Erin Wallace and Kate Gallagher who were pre-selected for the Scotland Celtic nations squad, they finished first and second in the Celtic nations respectively just 4 seconds ahead of Anna.  A stunning result.  Erin Wallace has just run a Scottish national record time of 9 mins 36 seconds for 3000m on the track.
