London Mini Marathon – our 2023 report

Scotland teams head for the 2024 TCS London Mini Marathon this weekend.

We are thrilled that 25 young Scots will have an opportunity to represent us in London in the U17 and U15 races and the Para event.

This well-known event now takes place on a Saturday, the day before the main London Marathon.

Races are now over a shorter course of 2.6k, which was introduced in 2021 and featured in the event back in October 2022 when Scotland teams were among those to compete.

Selections were based on the Young Athletes Road Races at Greenock, where the top four in each age group were picked automatically – with two other places at the discretion of our panel of selectors.

Congratulations once again to all the athletes selected and to their coaches and families as well as the clubs for all their hard work in helping on the development pathway.
