A TRIO of Tweed Leader Jed Track middle distance runners competed against much larger numbers from other clubs in the second of the Border Cross Country league events.

Adam Craig (18) backed up his tremendous senior race win at Lauder with a second place (first junior) in Galashiels behind Carnethy’s Michael Reid.

The first two were more that 1/2 a minute clear of the field and a different class from the rest. Adam is the East of Scotland 800m champion at U20 age group and a tremendous talent and runner.

Zoe Pflug was the first female finished in the junior race and backed up her Lauder win in the 12-13 age group.

Matt Dougall, venturing into his first cross country weeks before opening his indoor 800m season, won the 12-13 age category. Tactical Dougall sat in nicely with the leaders most of the way before opening up a five second lead in the last 200m.
