Next up in the Lindsays Cross Country Season are the District XC Champs coming up at three locations in December.
And the time is right now for clubs, coaches and team managers to get entries in by post for the relevant event at Elgin for the North; Bellahouston for the West and Livingston for the East.
At scottishathletics, we’ve been delighted with the response for District and National Championships in a number of disciplines over the past few years.
Cross country, in particular, has been really popular with numbers for the National XC Relays at Cumbernauld and the National XC at Falkirk having hit 20-year highs during 2015. Finishers numbers were also up significantly at Bellahouston for the Short Course Champs.
So we are looking for clubs, athletes, coaches and parents to support the forthcoming events in Elgin, Glasgow and Livingston in December – with places up for grabs for the Inter-District event at the Great Edinburgh XC on January 9.
*The North Districts take place in Elgin on Saturday 5 December and entries are by post by Friday 20 November to Sophie Dunnett.
*The West Districts take place in Glasgow on Sunday 6 December and entries are by post by Friday 20 November to the scottishathletics office.
*The East Districts take place in Livingston on Saturday 12 December and entries are by post by Saturday 28 November to Alex Jackson.
All the entry forms and other details are on the relevant pages for each event. If you are an athlete, coach or parent – please make sure someone at the clubs knows if you want to run at the Districts! Thanks
