Key info for East Fortune

The road running season is upon us and we are looking forward to hosting our Young Athletes Road Races this Saturday.

Athletes from clubs across the country will head for the courses set-up within the closed race circuit at East Fortune, near North Berwick.

We’re delighted to have almost 400 young athletes on start-lists for these races at U13/U15/U17 level with medals on offer for individuals and for teams.

In the U17 and U15 age groups, there is a selection element for Scotland teams for the London Mini Marathon which is coming up in April.

Our selection policies note that the first four athletes across the line in these U17 and U15 races are automatically selected for London for our teams of six. There are two further discretionary places to be decided by our selection group.

Here’s the race schedule for Saturday . . .

U13 Girls: Declare by 11.30am Race at 12 noon (2.5k)

U13 Boys: Declare by 11.45am Race at 12.15pm (2.5k)
