We are ready to bring back the Scottish 10k Champs after a two-year absence because of the global pandemic.
Road racing events are starting to return as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted across Scotland.
And the scottishathletics Road Running and Cross Country Commission have confirmed the Scottish 10k Champs will take place within the Stirling 10k event next month.
Central AC organise this event on an annual basis and the 2021 version will be staged on Sunday 12 September – after last year’s event was cancelled.
It’s a flat, fast and scene route which starts and finishes outside the Peak at Stirling Sports Village.
As well as National Championship medals, there are Stirling 10k individual prizes for age groups from 15 up to 60+ and prizes for the first male and female teams.
One of two aspects of the day are different from previous years because of the pandemic – there’s no 2k fun run on this occasion and there is a limit of just 500 entries for the 10k.
