Entries will close on Sunday at midnight for the Scottish Senior Champs and Scottish U17 Champs at Grangemouth on August 13/14.
We’ve already received a couple of hundred athlete entries for each of these but would love a few more to increase the level of competition!
It should be the highlight of the season and already we’ve noticed entries from the likes of GB internationals Jamie Bowie, Allan Smith, Rachel Hunter, Euan Gillham, Mhairi Hendry, George Evans, Kelsey Stewart and Ben Greenwood, Olympian Freya Ross and Scotland Commonwealth Games athletes such as Susan McKelvie, Myra Perkins, Greg Louden, Zoey Clark, Grant Plenderleith and many more.
We have an agreement with Vinco Sport (RunJumpThrow.com) to show the action from Grangemouth on August 13/14 and, for Senior athletes, there is the chance of selection for the Manchester International which takes place the Wednesday afterwards (17 August).
Entries remain open until midnight on Sunday (July 24) so why not follow our online links and do your entry now:
Remember, Competition – It’s What You Train For
There’s also an inter-clubs championship element to the Age Group Champs across the four age brackets.
Appearances for your club means points for an overall score for your club at U20, U17, U15 and U13 level and also in each of the event groups like endurance, jumps, throws and sprints.
Back in 2015, VP-Glasgow took the overall U20 title with Edinburgh AC, who won the Senior Club Champs, topping the table for both the U17 and U15 age groups. At U13 level, there was a 2015 win for Pitreavie AAC.
