Scotstats.net new section on Hill/Mountain Running 

Hill runners in Scotland will be pleased to hear there’s a new historical resource been created around this strand of our sport.

scottishathletics Historian, Arnold Black, curates the scotstats.net site – with a huge swathe of data pertaining to many parts of athletics in Scotland.

With assistance, Arnold has now created a hill running section with international details and also a look at the Scottish championship medallists over the past 15 years orso.

Scout Adkin of Ambleside won her second title at Broughton last August with James Dunn of Hunters Bog Trotters taking the men’s title for the first time.
