Medal Success at National Young Athletes Road Championships

Cera Gemmell ran to more medal success today, this time in a rainy and sometimes breezy Battery Park, Greenock. The National Young Athletes Road Championships drew entries totalling over 500 and for the U15 Girls consisted of a 3 lap, 4.2k tarmac course. Cera kept the eventual winner in sight for the whole race and completed the course in 2nd place to pick up a silver medal.

In the Boys U15 race, Joe Donnelly held position in the lead pack for the first 2 laps of the race and then battled home in 13th place after the eventual winner accelerated and stretched the field out, just as the wind really picked up.
