The Scottish Mid-Trail Champs will return to Fife again later this year.
ife AC have kindly agreed to host the championships with Falkland Estate again the venue for races for all age groups – with medals on offer from U15 through to U20/Seniors/Masters.
Saturday 2 September is the date for diaries and the Senior races are contested by men and women, in the same race, over a distance of around 12K. The start-finish area as at the Strathmiglo end of the estate.
Kyle Greig of Metro Aberdeen and Katie White of Garscube Harriers took the Senior titles in 2016, with the U20 golds landed by Craig Jardine of Cambuslang and Louise Mercer of Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds.
There are U11 and U13 development races, too, but these are not part of the Scottish Championships. It all happens on the day Fife AC host their ‘Festival of Trail Running’ and welcome all standard of athletes from beginners in this discipline to Scotland internationals.
The U20/Senior/Masters race for men and women is over 12K with the U15 and U17 mixed gender races over 5K. For the U11 and U13 races, the distance is 3K.
