Other individual medallists included Holly Thomson under 20 women 3rd, Cameron Wright under 17 boys 3rd and Donald Petrie who was 2nd in the M60 category in the Mens race.
The Kilbarchan club had a number of successes in the team competitions, particularly the under 15 boys who won team Gold with Jack Patton and Lewis Hannigan well supported by Lewis Barclay 9th. There were Silver team medals for the under 20 Mens team of Josh Hendry, Robert Ferguson and Scott McLardie.
