Grangemouth is often the focus of the attention in the track and field season in Scotland – and the gun goes off on summer 2017 in earnest on Saturday.
We are staging the National Relays Championships on the track, with the event taking place within the Scottish Unis and Colleges Champs on the same day.
The eagerly-awaited club relays are for U13, U15, U17 and Senior athletes and feature races at 4 x 100, 4 x 300m, 4 x 400m and 3 x 800m. The 4 x 300m races are in the younger age groups.
And we’re delighted to have a LIVE RESULTS service once again in operation for a Scottish National Championship event.
All you have to do is go to the Event section page for the fixture and click the link to take you to the start-lists which will become live results on Saturday (this also applies to events in the Scottish Unis and Colleges Champs).
Last year, Kilbarchan AAC made it five-in-a-row in terms of the men’s 4 x 400m title, with the event held in Aberdeen.
The quartet of Connor Henderson, Blair Crawford, Scott MacAulay and Anthony Young took the gold medals with 3.19.51. Inverclyde AC were victorious in the 4 x 100m thanks to the efforts of Robert Graham, Drew McIntyre, Shaun Tonner and Scott McLuckie as they clocked 44.10.
And there was a ‘home win’ for Aberdeen AAC in the men’s 3 x 800 relay thanks to the 5.48.25 run by Callum Symmons, Michael Ferguson and Rory Muir. Aberdeen won two of the Women’s Relay events – the 4 x 400m and the 4 x 100m – with Kilbarchan AAC taking golds in the 3 x 800m.
