Sponsors of our cross country season, Lindsays, have invited scottishathletics members to join them for the firm’s webinar ‘In conversation with Eilish McColgan’ taking place on Zoom on Wednesday 9 March from 4pm-5pm.
Sign-up details have been sent to all club secretaries by email, to forward to their members – if you have not yet received the information, check with your club secretary.
Hosted by Managing Partner Alasdair Cummings, Lindsays sponsored athlete Eilish will take part in a Q&A session with Ian Beattie MBE, Chief Operating Officer at Lindsays and now Chairman of UK Athletics.
2021 was a year of personal bests and firsts for Eilish, taking part in The Great North Run and achieving the 3rd fastest time in UK history in her half-marathon debut. She broke two European records on the roads in the 10k and the 10-mile races, as well as taking the British 5000m track record.
This will be an interactive event where participants will be able to put questions to Eilish.

Shettleston Harriers host their popular Allan Scally Road Relays at Glasgow Green on Saturday.
More than 100 teams from across the country have already entered and while online entries are now closed, there is the option for teams to enter on the day (£40 per team).
The event includes the Scottish Students Road Relay Championships as university and college teams contest medals.
There’s over £1900 in prize-money on offer and Scottish athletics legend Lachie Stewart will be on hand to start the race. Lachie was in the winning team when the event was first held in 1969 but missed the 50th celebrations a couple of years ago through illness.
And Shettleston are pleased to also stage a couple of other firsts – a wheelchair relay event and a prize for the first team with a mixed lineup of two men/two women.
