TOP class fields of athletes lined up on Saturday for the two Cademuir Rollercoaster hill races.

The 3k race saw a field of 18 line up.

And two intrepid of the runners from Linlithgow vets decided to also take on the 6k just 30 minutes later.

First home and smashing the shorter course record by close to a minute, was 2018 Scottish Cross-Country champion Angus Wright of Team East Lothian.

Angus was home in 12.06 minutes.

The conditions, both climatic and ground, were conducive to good times and the first four boys home were all sub-13 and inside the previous record.

Fifth home overall and also smashing the girls' course record by a healthy margin was Fife AC's Isla Hedley in a time of 13.48. Isla was following in the footsteps of big sister Anna who won the 2017 race.

The 6k saw a record 52 runners on the start line and HBT's Scott Fraser proved to be quickest home, crossing the line in 26.16. That was just outside the course record of 26.00, but 35 seconds clear of 2nd placed Jack Trainer from Garscube, a Scotland U18 hill running internationalist.

And another U18 internationalist was first female home - Rhona Mowat of Giffnock North crossing the line in 32.13.

Rhona was too young to receive her top-notch prosecco from race sponsor Franco but her mum accepted it on her behalf.

Of the host club, Moorfoots, Ben Balfour, in his first ever hill race, had a storming run for 6th and 1st U20 in 28.42.

And David Gaffney just missed the 30-minute barrier by two seconds in finishing 10th and Kenny Davidson was 16th (6th vet) in 31.31.

In the female category Amy Alcorn was fifth in 35.32 and Beth Hobbs 8th (1st U17) in 37.37.
