CLUBS – Enter names now for Lindsays National XC

Tuesday 28th January 2020

Lindsays National XC at Falkirk on our Event section

Calling all clubs!

The Lindsays National XC is coming to Falkirk on Saturday 22 February and we want as big an entry as possible.

It’s always one of the great days in the year with the atmosphere generated by our clubs in Callendar Park very special.

So clubs, coaches and team managers should now be gathering up names and entering them online to our Events team. There is also a facility online for individuals to enter.


The entry deadline is Thursday 6 February but there’s no time like the present to ensure your name is on start-lists.

If you want to race at Falkirk, make sure you let someone at your club know!

2019-20 Lindsays Trophy

Giffnock North AC are leading the way as they seek to maintain their grip on the Lindsays Trophy.

The Glasgow club have the largest number of finishes at two national cross country events so far this season.

Sponsors Lindsays and scottishathletics award the Lindsays Trophy each year to the club with the highest tally from the Lindsays National XC Relays, the Lindsays Short Course and the Lindsays National XC.

Giffnock are the current holders, after winning the cup back from Garscube Harriers, and they have a lead of 39 from nearest challengers Edinburgh AC before thoughts turn to the Lindsays National XC at Falkirk on February 22.

Fife AC are making a big bid for a top three finish with Central AC and Garscube completing the top five for the moment.

There are no fewer than 81 different clubs listed so far for the Lindsays Trophy, with at least one finisher at one or other or both of Cumbernauld/Kirkcaldy, and that’s a big encouragement for the sport!

Top ten (after two events)

Giffnock North AC 150

Edinburgh AC 111

Fife AC 108

Central AC 107

Garscube Harriers 100

Cambuslang Harriers 87
