Glasgow played host on Sunday to a pre-Commonwealth Games Urban Orienteering race, hosting a combined Scottish and UK League counter.

A large number of runners gathered at The People’s Palace for a fast and furious navigational challenge taking in the parkland, university grounds and city centre.

Several Roxburgh Reivers took podium places.

Faisal Khursheed won M16 with Patrick Heger – now fourth in the UK League – took second. Yousuf Khursheed finished third on M14.

The ladies also ran well with Eileen Maxwell and Lindsey Knox both finishing second in their age classes and both now head the UK league. Eileen lies second in the Scottish league. Kirstin Maxwell followed up her third place in the May Bank Holiday urban race in Kendal with second on the Women’s Elite to leave her second in the UK league and third in the Scottish league.

Next up for the local club are the Scottish Championships on May 24 in Perthshire and the British Championships in Northumberland on May 31.
