Welcome to our new #ThrowbackThursday occasional feature.

Each time we will dip into our photograph Archive and also our You Tube channel to take a snapshot of a particular year.

Initially, we will be looking between 2010 and 2019 given the material we have available and taking into account that there is already a lot of history archived on the Road Running and Cross Country Commission website.

In terms of track and field, check out Scotstats.net compiled by our scottishathletics Historian, Arnold Black, and also the History section on this site.

In the History pages of this site, you can peruse Arnold’s Archive as he looks at various stories about events, athletes, clubs from the past.

For the moment, we will start with 2014 and the Lindsays National XC at Falkirk features in our video below.

Callum Hawkins of Kilbarchan AAC and Rhona Auckland of Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds won the Senior titles.

Hampden Memories (Album 1) on Facebook

In terms of photographs, we’ve picked out a Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games album from Bobby Gavin.

However, this album features hardly any athletes at all as the main focus in this one are our scottishathletics Officials and the Clydesider volunteers who made the Games at Hampden happen.

There are a few familiar faces . . .


If you do want to check out the action in track, field and marathon – see our You Tube channel

This is Bobby Gavin’s Day Two album and there are others for each day of the action.
