scottishathletics are making plans to publish one more PB magazine for members in 2020.
The first issue of 2020 was published at the start of March after a stunning indoor and cross country season with triple British Record holder, Jemma Reekie, as the main cover star.
At that time, we of course anticipated a second issue being distributed to members around now, with the third to appear later in the year.
Following the coronavirus crisis and the cancellation of so many events at international and domestic level, we decided to cancel the July edition. Cost considerations were an issue, too, as we reacted and responded to the pandemic.
Now we can confirm we’re hoping to produce an end-of-year edition around mid-November which will reflect both the autumn action (hopefully!) but also the sport’s remarkable response to the Covid-19 restrictions via Virtual Events and other activity.
In recent weeks, we’ve moved our Grassroots Athletics features on various clubs from PB magazine to the website and have turned the spotlight on Dumbarton AAC, Bellahouston Road Runners, Perth Strathtay Harriers, Metro Aberdeen, Greenock Glenpark Harriers, Gala Harriers, Wee County Harriers, Nairn Area AAC.
If you are part of the hierarchy of another club (other than those listed) and are interested in being featured in the magazine, please email with some details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to the many folk who support PB magazine in various ways.

Competition opportunities may have been limited to Virtual Events in the past few months – but it doesn’t seem to stop our clubs winning awards!
Well done to Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds on landing the Scottish Student Sport Club of the Year title.
Among the club’s achievements was hosting a huge version of the BUCS Cross Country Champs at Holyrood Park in January.
Well done to all involved at EU Hare and Hounds.
SPORTING MEMORIES IN 100 OBJECTS
The Sporting Memories Network are looking for people involved/interested in sport to film a short video, in which they reminisce about a sporting object that is of emotional value to them.
The videos will help raise awareness of their work to inspire people living with dementia and social isolation, and will be used as a resource for future activities.
To give you an idea and for inspiration, watch Andy Currie recall his career as an athletics and Higland Games Official and Judge.
For more info on submitting your own video, see the Sporting Memories Network website
