International Handbook page for 2017

Important news for athletes, coaches, officials, clubs and all with an interest in athletics in Scotland – our International Handbook for 2017 is now online.

This year, the document is split into section sections to give a guide to some key dates – both international and domestic – for the forthcoming season.

Everything is included in terms of track and field; hill running; and road running and cross country. for Para athletes, we have also added a guide to prominent Wheelchair races over 2017.

Scotland will compete in track and field at the Loughborough International on May 21 and the Manchester International on August 16. The Celtic Games, with Scotland competing at U16 and U18 level, are in Dublin on August 5.
