scottishathletics are following advice from the Scottish and UK Governments concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will continue to monitor all developments on a very regular basis.

As things stand, scottishathletics national championship events coming up over the next couple of weeks are ON.

*Tru Wealth Young Athletes Road Races at Greenock on Sunday (March 15).

*Tru Wealth National Road Relays at Livingston on Saturday 28 March.

However, our priority is to ensure the health and safety of all athletes, coaches, volunteers and members of staff and will work closely with other bodies (including the venues) on this matter and will act as guided by the Scottish and UK Governments and the World Health Organisation advice.

We intend to make a more detailed statement around our policies with regard to cancellations and postponements for championship events in due course.

Club gatherings of well under 500 people should be able to continue to go ahead with the advice being that those suffering from cold symptoms should not attend. Athletes suffering from cold symptoms should not be training.
