Good results for Adkin siblings

In the combined Senior/Under-20 East District Cross-country races at Broxburn, sister and brother, Scout, 21, and Jacob Adkin, 18, from Moorfoot Runners, both had fine runs.

The Peebles siblings recorded their best placings yet in the East League since graduating from the age-group races.

Scout was home in fifth slot (21.24) in the senior women’s 5.4km challenge, while Jacob finished in an excellent 10th position in the men’s 8.1km race and was second under-20 home, helping Edinburgh University take the team win.
