The Irvine Beach Park venue has hosted over 30 men’s and women’s National XC Championships and International events like the Celtic Nations.
Many due to be involved on Saturday will remember Scottish Schools Championships also being hosted at the Beach Park.
The format of the Inter–District is that for each age group, each District can select 15 athletes to compete.
In the Senior races a Scottish Students team is invited to compete with the three Districts. Each team race comprises six to count.
