IT is a special year for athletics in Scotland – and we’ve put together a special summer edition of PB magazine to mark the occasion for our members.
And, as an extra souvenir ahead of the Commonwealth Games, there will be a full colour photo montage distributed with each issue of the edition.
We’ve brought together shots of all the 58 athletes selected by Team Scotland in what we hope will be a memorable poster for scottishathletics members.
The cover shot of the magazine is also different this time around, with Bobby Gavin’s exclusive photograph the first of the vest which will be worn by our track, field and marathon athletes at Glasgow 2014 in association with suppliers KUKRI and partners Commonwealth Games Scotland.
Inside, there is a 24-page section on the Games as well as the usual features with clubs featured this time including Livingston and District AAC, Motherwell AC in their 21st year and one of the newest athletics clubs in Scotland, Chirnside Chasers.
Four editions of PB each year are membership benefits and that’s a huge bargain at just £5 for children and £18 for seniors.

Chief executive Nigel Holl firmly believes this summer is about so much more than just the 58-strong Team Scotland.
‘Glasgow will be a stunning Commonwealth Games, I don’t have any doubts about that,’ he said.
‘But, as supporters, as crowds, as the athletics family in Scotland, we have a role to perform. To support and give our Scottish athletes an advantage they will remember for the rest of their lives.
‘Some of us were lucky enough to experience that electric feeling in Delhi at the last Games when Indian athletes were given amazing backing.
‘’The Hampden Roar’ is already famous here and beyond and I hope that every time we hear a Scottish athlete interviewed he or she will mention that the support is something they will take with them all their lifeand into whatever success they have in the future.
‘For that to happen, we all need to ‘perform when it counts’ as well as the athletes and coaches selected.’
