Veterans Home International 2012

VHI 2012 most of squad by random passer-by

The Scottish team for the 2012 VHI traveled to Northern Ireland, to take part in the VHI races on 16th and 17th June at Tollymore, near Newcastle.
The points for the VHI have been provisionally calculated and show that Scotland came second in both the Individual and Relay events.


Provisional points scores (based on published provisional results) are:

Individual  (Men + Women = Total)

1. England  71 + 69 =140
2. Scotland  62 + 58 = 120
3. Wales      38 + 51 = 89
4. Ireland     39 + 34 = 73

Relays  (Class MWM + Class WMW = Total)

1. England  56 + 62 = 118
2. Scotland  56 + 44 = 100
3. Wales      22 + 34 = 56
4. Ireland     22 + 16 = 38


1. England  258
2. Scotland  220
3. Wales      145
4. Ireland     111

So Scotland wll have to wait for next year's VHI (to be held in England) to see if they can bring back a VHI Trophy.
