Eilish McColgan has set up a scheme to support young female coaches.

Via the ‘BackToTrack’ project launched with partner Michael Rimmer, Eilish has pledged to support two young coaches through their scottishathletics qualifications.

Eilish said: ‘Our Inspire Coaching Grant will support two individuals to gain their Coaching qualifications – so that they can give back, inspire and coach the next generation of youngsters.’

The support is open to Scottish females, ages 18-30, with a real passion for track and field, athletics/running events.
