Cross Country Ski Club, Graham’s Field Tolerton 19/9/21
There were some fantastic numbers on Graham’s field in Tolerton for the annual cross country club. For some it was their first Cross Country experience and there was great excitement at the start lines. Well done to all of our athletes who competed and a big thank you to the coaches and parents who make events like this happen.
