Competition: win Ngugi lecture tickets

Tuesday 30th September 2014

John Ngugi and Dr Andrew Murray

Calling all endurance athletes and coaches! There’s a great education opportunity coming up in Edinburgh featuring legendary Kenyan John Ngugi – who won the World XC five times and won Olympic gold at 5000m.

And we have three pairs of tickets to be won to the special seminar event taking place on the evening of Monday 20 October.

John will join with Scottish judo medallist, Euan Burton, and Scotland international ultra runner, Dr Andrew Murray, for a special seminar on October 20 at the Anatomy Lecture Theatre, University of Edinburgh (from 6pm).

‘Scotland has had many great champions in running and other sports and the Commonwealth Games was spectacular,’ said Ngugi.

‘I will be so pleased to share some of the lessons that have made myself and many other Kenyan athletes successful in my sport, and to work with athletes and see the facilities at University of Edinburgh.’

The event is headlined ‘Being Your Best’ and involves contributions from each of the three speakers.

Burton will open up on his ‘Glasgow 2014 experience’; Ngugi will address ‘What it takes to win Olympic gold’ and Murray will talk about ‘some Science and Medicine that can improve performance’.

Tickets are £10 and there are more details online on

But we have 3 x 2 tickets to give away and all you need to do is answer a simple question:

How many times did John Ngugi win the World XC Champs?

Send you answers by email to by noon on Monday 6 October. Please put ‘SAL Competition’ in the subject field.

Good luck!
