Scott storms to top-10 finish at European Cross Country


Britain’s Marc Scott produced a strong performance at the European Cross Country on Sunday, capping a fine year by finishing ninth in the senior men’s race.

Scott clocked 29:21 for the 10,300m race, which featured a twisting, technical course and was run in testing underfoot conditions at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park in Tilburg, the Netherlands.

The race was won by Norway’s Filip Ingebrigtsen in 28:49.

The performance closes out a fine year for Scott, a member of the Nike Bowerman Track Club in Portland. He finished a fine fifth at the European Championships over 5000m in the summer, clocking 13:23.14, and he also claimed the British title over the same distance in June and went on to compete for Europe over 3000m at the Continental Cup in Ostrava.
