The British Cross Challenge Series is coming to Scotland early in 2020 and it is very important for athletics in Scotland that we both deliver a good event and have big entry numbers.
Racing for Scotland, representing your District, or simply racing against your club-mates or rivals – all of theses are on offer at Run Stirling event being put together for Saturday 11 January as the traditional New Year cross country fixture in Scotland.
A number of partners have combined with scottishathletics to help stage this event, particularly EventScotland, Stirling Council, British Athletics and Great Run. We are also hugely grateful to Central AC for taking on much of the organisation as our host club.
Stirling Golf Club and Kings Park will host the course – as it did back in January this year – for an event which will have a number of elements all threaded through the first British Cross Challenge event in this country in the current format.
So, as well as those picked to represent Scotland or indeed the East, West and North for the Inter-Districts events, the invitation is open to clubs en masse to compete and enjoy a January fixture, which takes place six weeks prior to the Lindsays National XC.
