Non-binary athletes competing within Scottish National Championships

Following discussions with athletes, event organisers and with our event commissions, all scottishathletics championship events will include a non-binary gender category within the event entry options.

This will run as a pilot from the start of April 2019 and will include all events which stage a national championship on our behalf.

The scottishathletics policy on non-binary athletes competing within Scottish National Championship events is lodged on our Equality pages.

Timetabling for non-binary competitors will be looked at on a case by case basis, and individually reviewed per event/discipline. Support and advice on best practice is available to all event organisers new to hosting events for a non-binary category.

A copy of our non-binary guidelines for race organisers can be found on our website.

*If you have any further questions, please contact our National Events Manager, Alasdhair Love or our Equalities Officer, Francesca Snitjer for any advice.

Scottish 5K Champs at Silverknowes will be one of the first events with a non-binary category
