District XC Relays; Officials Conference; UK Members Council; Awards

Thursday 28th September 2017

The District XC Relays will mark the start of the scottishathletics cross country programme for 2017-18 – and entries are closing soon!

It all happens over the weekend of Saturday 14 October and Sunday 15 October with events taking place at three venues across the length and breadth of Scotland.

Now we are asking clubs officials, coaches and team managers to make sure they put together entries over the next few days in order to meet the deadline to submit forms by Monday 2 October.

Glamis Castle near Forfar will be the scenic backdrop for the East District XC Relays and Edderton will play host to the North District XC Relays. Both of those events are on the Saturday. And Hamilton Racecourse is the venue for the West District XC Relays and that one is taking place on the Sunday (October 15)

EAST entry forms – closes Monday 2 October (by post)

NORTH entry forms – closes Monday 2 October (by post)

WEST entry forms – closes Monday 2 October (by post)

All entries are by post for these events so we are asking clubs to now gather up names for teams and get those off to the relevant address (see the Event page for each District XC Relay).
