The summer track and field season is firmly up and running and London will be very much in the spotlight for the World Para Champs in July and the IAAF World Champs in August.
But, for so many of our dedicated scottishathletics members, the Scottish National Championships later in August should be the highlight and the target – and rightly so.
And the Age Group Champs will be the place to be for athletes in the U20, U15 and U13 categories on the weekend of August 19/20 at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow.
That’s the weekend before our Senior Champs at Grangemouth when U17 athletes compete for national medals, final places and PBs.
We’ve been delighted with the response by the track and field community to scottishathletics National Championship events in recent years. The Age Groups, in particular, have been hugely popular and we’d love to see athletes, coaches and clubs make Scotstoun their main target for the summer season.
