The Lindsays National XC is coming up next month – and entries are now open!
We can’t wait to gather once again at Callendar Park in Falkirk on Saturday 24 February.
It will be the climax to the Lindsays Cross Country Season and we expect hundreds of entries from our clubs to make the National XC very special.
This year’s event will mark the 10th season of sponsorship by Lindsays and we are hugely grateful for that support.
But what makes the day so memorable is the commitment to competition by our clubs – with usually close to 100 represented at Falkirk.
Let’s have that kind of presence and depth once again to deliver cross country contests with true nationwide meaning in Scotland and worthy medallists individually and as team across all 10 races.
Please be aware that entries will close at 5pm on Thursday 8 February.
