2017 National XC Relay Entry Form

Calling all clubs! The Lindsays Cross Country Season for 2017-18 will kick-off with the National XC Relays – and once again we will have video footage from the event.

Cumbernauld House Park is the venue – for the 17th year – for this eagerly-anticipated and hugely popular event which draws athletes from the length and breadth of Scotland.

The Lindsays National XC Relays will take place this year on Saturday 28 October and we need entries to come in by post by clubs for the closing date of Monday 16 October. Or by email by 5pm that day

And we can confirm once again that thanks to that essential financial support from Lindsays, we have been able to arrange again for our partners at Vinco to provide footage of the National XC Relays on their website

This will be the fifth year in row we’ve had the Cumbernauld races filmed on a day which always brings together the family of athletics, with the championship races taking in boys and girls, men and women and from the U13 age group to the increasingly-competitive O50s race for Masters Men and Masters Women.

All the details are on the page on our Events section
