All roads lead back to Falkirk this coming weekend for the first Lindsays National XC event for two years.
The 2020 version was memorable for tough conditions and severe weather while our plans for 2021 fell victim to Covid-19 restrictions at that time.
But preparations are now well underway for this Saturday’s event which has drawn no fewer than 2238 athletes from more Scottish clubs than ever before – with 109 represented.
The course map has been published on our Event section page (and below) and we would ask everyone coming along to compete to study it and the other important information.
Check the Event section page link at the top of this story for declaration times, race start times and the entry lists for each age group.
At this stage, we say a big thank you to the Callendar Park landowners, the Falkirk Community Trust, host club Falkirk Victoria Harriers and all our race marshal volunteers (from a number of clubs).
