After a hectic weekend at Grangemouth for the FPSG Seniors and U17s, we’ve another 700 or so athletes getting ready for the FPSG Age Groups.
The U13s compete on Saturday and the U15s are at ASV on Sunday with the U20 age group programme split over the two days.
If you are in the Grampian area, or even a little further afield, why not come along over the weekend and support club-mates or friends and watch championship athletes featuring the next generation?
Admission is £3 per adult with U16s free. It’s £5 for admission with a programme.
Once again we would like to express our thanks to our track and field sponsors, FPSG Recruitment, for their support and, of course, our hard-working scottishathletics Officials who are making plans for Aberdeen during a hectic period in the summer season. Thanks!
*Registered scottishathletics coaches are invited to join us on Sunday from 11am to 1pm at the FPSG Age Group Champs for tea, coffee and a morning roll and a chance to chat athletics.
Scotland hill runners earlier this season
Scottish hill runners are preparing for two key events taking place this weekend.
The scottishathletics Senior Championship takes place on Saturday as part of the Ochils 2000s race.
This is a tough category A long race which follows a 33km point-to-point route over the Ochil hills from Glen Devon to Stirling University. There are medals to be won in these categories: U23, Senior, V40, V50,V60 and teams, with male and female awards in each.
Please pre-enter as entry on the day is limited.
Then, come Sunday, the attention switches to the juniors, who will be converging on Aberfoyle for the trial races used to decide the teams for the Junior Home International.
This year that event is taking place in Ireland on Saturday 8 September. On Sunday, there will be trial races for U20 and U17 athletes, with males and females running the same course. There will also be a separate race at U15 level and a fun run for all ages.
Entry is on the day only, and full details and a course map can be accessed from our Events section page
