Inverness Harriers took the Senior Men’s team golds at the 2018 Trail Champs
The Scottish Mid-Trail Champs will be staged for the seventh time at the start of September – with Fife AC once again as host club.
Falkland Estate will be the venue for a series of races which includes national championships from U15 through to U20/Seniors/Masters as well as taster sessions at U13 and U11.
Sunday 1 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 10k.
GB international Kristian Jones won a great race last year from Andy Douglas with John Newsom in third to lead Inverness Harriers to the men’s team golds.
Lauren Dickson of Lasswade took the Senior Women’s gold in a season when she won GB vests in hill running as the silver went to Kristin Lownie of PH Racing and bronze to Catriona Graves of Garscube.
U11 12 noon 3K
U13 12.30pm 3K
U15 1pm 5K
U17 1.30pm 5K
U20/Seniors/Masters 2pm 10K
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.
