Reuben’s yearn to learn; Run Balmoral and Kirkcaldy Half OFF

Friday 20th March 2020

Talented pole vaulter Reuben Nairne was in Loughborough last weekend for learning and practical sessions with British Athletics.

The event specific camp was a good opportunity for the young Scot to pick up tips with Stephen Maguire, our Director of Coaching and Performance, having set up the trip.

scottishathletics would like to thank those involved at Loughborough for assistance on this.

Giffnock North and Glasgow Pole Vault School athlete Reuben is coached by Brian Donaldson and was in great form during the Indoor Season as he continues to raise the bar.


Organisers of the Run Balmoral races, which are scheduled for the weekend of April 18-19, have confirmed this year’s event has been cancelled but will return in 2021.

Runners signed up for the original event will have the option to roll their entry over for 2021 or apply for a refund.

Run Balmoral said: ‘We appreciate cancellation is disappointing, but it is unavoidable given the health risks facing the nation at this time.

‘We have looked at the options for rescheduling this year. But with the continuing uncertainty over how long the coronavirus crisis may last – as well as other potential commitments on Balmoral Estate – and unfortunately it’s not possible to come up with a new date.

‘We can, however, offer everyone the opportunity to roll their entries over to the 2021 event, which is to be held on April 17-18 next year, or we can offer a refund.’


*The Kirkcaldy Half Marathon – which had been due to feature the East Half Marathon Champs – will not now take place in August. This event will not be rescheduled.
