Mud and guts

MORE than 1200 youngsters have braved the mud to reach the finish of Glasgow's annual Schools Cross Coun-try Championship.

Yesterday's race was staggered according to age, with primary four and fives first off the blocks at Nether Pollok Playing Fields.

After they had completed the tough course, the way was clear for secondary pupils to tackle. Councillor Stephen Curran, Glasgow City Council executive member for education and young people, said: "The cross country championships are part of a range of events held throughout the school year to improve the fitness levels of our young people."
