On Friday evening the Scottish 5km Road Championships was held at Silverknowes, Edinburgh and first to cross the line in an excellent time of 14.32 was GB Track international Mark Mitchell.

Earlier in the season Mark finished 4th in the Edinburgh Inter District cross country championships and won a bronze medal in the Scottish National cross country championships, proving his strength from winter training coupled with his natural speed, is too strong for the opposition.

Mark makes it a hatrick of national champions for Forres Harriers this season, joining Anna MacFadyan who won the U17 Ladies Scottish National and Scottish Schools, and Ben Cameron who won the U13 Boys Scottish Schools title.
