A number of our pupils celebrated success in the 4x200m relays running for Edinburgh Athletics Club at the Scottish Relay Championships Final held during the first evening of the European Indoor Athletics Championships at the Emirates in Glasgow on 1 March.

Alastair Holmes (S3) and Mateo Hughes (S2) won gold in the U15 Boys, a clear 3 seconds ahead of the competition.
While Tom Kelly (S3) did not run at this event, he was part of the U15 Boys relay team (along with Mateo and Alastair) that broke the Scottish Record (with a time of 1:38:83 seconds) at a Scottish Athletics Indoor League event on 16 March, also held at the Emirates Arena. This team is currently ranked 2nd in the UK.

Megan Barnes (S2) was a reserve for the U15 Girls, helping them qualify for the final of the U15 Girls who went on to win Silver.

Patrick Barnes (P7) was part of the U13 Boys team who ran a Championship Best Performance (with a time of 1:54:13), winning gold and topping the 2019 UK rankings.
