The men’s team secured a first win at the 6 stage road relays in Livingston today.
Callum Matthews ran the first short leg in 16:12 (5th), before handing over to Derek Hawkins who brought the team into the lead with the fastest long leg of the day in 28:08.
This was held by Gavin McArdle who stomred the short leg with the fastest time on that leg 15:25 and Euan Gillham who ran 29:46.
A returning from injury Scott MacAulay lost some ground but kept Central in sight with a 16:58 short leg and Callum Hawkins anchored the team very well to bring the trophy home, securing the second fastest long leg time of 28:29.
