Pitlochry Highland Games

East Kilbride AC defended their youth relay title in style at Pitlochry Highland Games on Saturday, September 14.

Chloe Mason, Greg Kelly, Nicole Sharp and Aiden Gilbride won their heat before going on to triumph in the final from Clydesdale 'A' and Innerleithen.

Each athlete ran a half lap of the 320m grass track in girl, boy, girl, boy order. East Kilbride AC have now competed in the relay four times, winning each time.

Aiden and Chloe also took part in the individual youth races, which are handicapped according to age and ability.

Aiden ran two barnstorming races as backmarker in both the boys' 400m and mixed 800m, trying to give away big starts and finishing third in both races. Chloe finished second in her heat of the youths' 90m with winners only progressing to the final. Better was to come in the girls' 400m when, from the back mark, she sprinted through the field and had enough left in the tank to hold on for victory.
