Eilidh Doyle has been chatting about her life and her athletics to the ‘My Time Capsule’ podcast.

Host Mike Fenton Stevens is from the world of theatre rather than sport and asks his guests to name four items, things or memories that they would like to have buried in their time capsule – plus one ‘regret’ they would like buried with the capsule in order to let it go.

It makes for an absorbing listen as Scotland’s most decorated track and field athlete takes us through different aspects and makes her selections.

Eilidh mentions her upbringing in Scotland, her university time in Edinburgh, her Olympic medal and her Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medal in the 400m hurdles.

‘I would pick as one of my best moments for my time capsule would be my  lap of honour at Hampden at Glasgow 2014,’ said Eilidh.

‘Not the race itself and not the medal itself but the lap of honour. I find it hard sometimes to pick out the highlights of my career but that was definitely one of them because everything fell into place that night.’

Great Scottish Run reminder service registration

The Great Scottish Run have announced their scheduled date for 2021.

It’s always a big occasion and, with the 2020 event cancelled, it was last run in the autumn of 2019 with tens of thousands on the start-line for the various events over that weekend.

Now the event is being lined up to return to the streets of Glasgow on Sunday 3 October 2021. Entries are due to open soon, but there is a current option to sign-up for the Reminder Service to get the latest event news.
