Megan Keith returned to action on the track in Birmingham in midweek – her first race since the World Cross Country Champs in Australia in February.

The Inverness Harriers/Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds athlete took victory over 3000m in the Women’s A race at a BMC meet. Megan clocked 9:00.11 for the win and moved to tenth in our all-time list.

There were other strong Scottish performances that evening in younger age groups and also over 3000m.

Team East Lothian’s Corey Campbell, who is heading to the States on a scholarship later this year, clocked 8:06.46 for sixth place in his race – to move third all-time at U20 for Scottish athletes.

Giffnock North’s Conan Harper moved to fifth all-time at U20 with the 17-year-old clocking an excellent 8:07.35.

At the same meet, Kane Elliott of Falkirk Victoria Harriers followed up his bronze at the Scottish 5K Champs with a 1:49.02 run at 800m.


At Linwood, there was a terrific performance at U15 level from Angus Wilkinson of East Kilbride AC over 3000m.

Angust clocked 8:40.87 which is understood to be a Scottish and British best for the distance in that age group. Well done to athlete and coach!


Fine Decathlon performance by Joel McFarlane in the States – with a new PB now of 7661.

That takes Joel to third in the all-time list! Well done to athlete and coach.
