All set for District XC Relays . . .

Wednesday 10th October 2018

West District XC Relay Champs 2018 Results Summary PROVISIONAL

The scottishathletics Cross Country season will be under starter’s orders at three venues come Saturday morning – and once again there has been a huge response from the community.

Athletes, coaches and clubs in the East, North and West all can’t wait for the races at Glamis Castle, Dores near Inverness and Irvine Beach Park.

It’s the traditional start to the season and comes only a fortnight to the next big gathering for the Lindsays National XC Relays at Cumbernauld.

And we are absolutely thrilled with an overall entry number of no fewer than 2524 athletes for the three District XC Relays events, with hundreds of teams all set to compete.

There’s been an ‘uprising’ in the North, for sure. Last year, this event attracted entries from nine full Senior/U20 Women’s team and 12 full Senior/U20 Men’s teams. This year those figures have shot up to 19 Women’s teams and 24 Men’s teams.

That is terrific growth and while reflecting a great commitment to competition we feel is happening across the country can maybe also be attributed to the likes of North XC training sessions which were well-attended last winter.

Here are the overall numbers as compiled by our Events team:

SW SM YF YM Total
East 232 407 148 191 978
North 60 110 34 49 253
West 255 570 229 239 1293
Total 547 1087 411 479 2524

All at scottishathletics would like to thank our three host clubs for their assistance in the preparation for this weekend – that’s North Ayrshire AC in the West, Forfar Road Runners in the East and Inverness Harriers in the North.

Key information and start-lists (which have been up-dating following membership renewals) are on the Events section with a separate page for each venue. Please do read the details on here.
