The Giffnock North under 14 girls A team struck gold at Pitreavie on Sunday when they won the Scottish National 3 x 800 metre relay title.

The local team took an early lead and dominated the race.

A strong Edinburgh team tried to fight back on the final leg, but there was never any danger of Giffnock being caught and the girls finished in a championship best time of 7 minutes and 31 seconds.

The B team managed to finish in seventh place even though a last minute replacement had to be drafted in.

In the senior men’s team race there was not much competition for the Giffnock trio, who also took gold.
