Enter online for 5K Champs on May 4

The Scottish 5K Road Champs are happening on a Friday evening in early May in Edinburgh – and entries are now open.

Silverknowes Esplanade has been a regular venue for this championship event in recent years and the race, which is organised by Run and Become, has a reputation for delivering fast times over a flat course.

This year it will take place on Friday 4 May and entries are open at £12 and £10 for scottishathletics members. The race forms part of the scottishathletics Road Race Grand Prix.

The Run and Become Sri Chinmoy 5km road race at Silverknowes is quite simply acknowledged as one of the most competitive in depth short road races in the Scottish calendar.

Whatever your standard, the momentum of this event from start to finish line seems to bring the best out of everyone and gets the adrenaline flowing. Entry limited to 600 runners.


In the West, the District medals for 2018 will be contested at the Shettleston Babcock 10K event in Glasgow Green on Sunday 27 May.

This is the third and final race in the Babcock 10K Series which also sees races happening in Helensburgh and Dumbarton earlier in May,

Shettleston Harriers host the third race with the course flat and fast around the Glasgow Green and Shawfield area of the city on that Sunday morning – with a 10am start for this one.

Entries are open on entrycentral.com and there’s £3000 of Startfitness vouchers on offer in various category awards as well as the District Championship medals.
