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