Quarrelwood, Elgin, Scotland
James Geddes is a very high calibre runner from Inverness who is clearly struggling on this occasion. He eventually finished in a lack lustre (for him) 6th position. I confess I was surprised and on making enquiry I learned that he had injued his foot a few days prior to the event but elected to run anyway. He finished the under 17 boys north district cross country championship event in a time of 25 mins 22 seconds. I hope he hasn't exacerbated his injury and will still qualify to run in Edinburgh as he is rarely out of the top spot during the winter cross country series.
