The Scottish Mid-Trail Champs will be staged for the seventh time at the start of September – with Fife AC once again as host club.
Falkland Estate will be the venue for a series of races which includes national championships from U15 through to U20/Seniors/Masters as well as taster sessions at U13 and U11.
Sunday 1 September is the date for diaries and the Senior races are contested by men and women, in the same race, over a distance of around 10k.
GB international Kristian Jones won a great race last year from Andy Douglas with John Newsom in third to lead Inverness Harriers to the men’s team golds.
Lauren Dickson of Lasswade took the Senior Women’s gold in a season when she won GB vests in hill running as the silver went to Kristin Lownie of PH Racing and bronze to Catriona Graves of Garscube.
The East District Half Marathon Championships will head to the Borders in the autumn.
Sunday 27 October is the date for diaries with the championships now taking place as part of the Jedburgh Half Marathon within the Jedburgh Running Festival that weekend.
Entries are available online now with the race at 11am that day and there’s a limit of 1000 runners. It’s £16.50 for SAL members and is via Entry Central.
As is usual for our district champs, there will be individual and team medals on offer for athletes from clubs within the East District area.
