Chariots of Fire 5K

posted 1 Oct 2017, 07:30 by Cross Country Club - Saints Sport

Our annual Chariots of Fire 5K race went off an absolute blast, with a record of 93 people finishing. Representatives from Aberdeen, Glasgow Caledonian, St Andrews, Heriot-Watt, Abertay, Edinburgh and Dundee were present. First Male saw a hatrick for Rory Stead of Aberdeen, winning for his third year in a row; and Ali Hunter of Aberdeen first female. For the first year, home team St Andrews won the first team, with a notably impressive from our own Annabel Personeni winning second female. Being the first ever Cross Country Varsity, as part of the kingdom vs capital games, St Andrews won against Edinburgh also. 
Along with the runners from other universities that stayed, we all enjoyed a smashing cheesy afterparty in Sandy's Bar, full of 90's karaoke and pablos. 
Thanks to all that took part, and here's to an even bigger race next year!
