Lothian Running Club duo Max McNeil and Malcolm Lang enjoyed a successful weekend picking up medals in prestigious team events. Both competitions took place outside Scotland. Over the pond in the United States, Max McNeil put the icing on what so far has been an excellent cross country season by leading his Oklahoma City University squad to their 4th N.A.I.A. National Championship in Cedar Rapids,Iowa. McNeil was the leading finisher for OCU completing the 8k course within Seminole Park in 24 minutes 43 seconds, and with his Stars team mates packing closely behind him the title was secured.
Down in Swansea, Malcolm Lang pulled on the Scotland vest to represent his country in the British & Irish Masters Cross Country Championships in Singleton Park. Malcolm finished 5th Scot which helped his country to bronze medals in the M40 category behind England and Wales. The Lothian runner completed the 8k course in 27 minutes 56 seconds.
