The Lindsays Cross Country Season is imminent!
Our track and field season concludes in terms of Scottish Championship events this coming weekend at Linwood with a huge entry received for Club Relays.
But already we want clubs (and their coaches, team managers and parents) to start thinking about the Lindsays District Cross Country Relays.
Our Road Running and Cross Country Commission and the events team at scottishathletics have been working hard with venue operators and host clubs to clear the way for the return of these events.
Saturday 9 October is the date for diaries and training plans – and we are asking clubs to start going online and entering names for the East, North and West events scheduled to take place that day.
Galashiels Academy will host the East event while Alexandra Sports Hub in Glasgow is the venue for the West event. The North venue should be confirmed soon.
