The final countdown is now very much on for the 2019 Lindsays National XC in Falkirk!
And, once again, scottishathletics will be pleased to present video footage from the event at Callendar Park on Saturday with our partners from Vincosport.
We introduced drone footage for the first time in 2018 and also staged a delayed transmission of longer-version highlights on the Saturday evening after the races had been completed at Falkirk.
That coverage will be replicated for 2019 this weekend and we will also restore short-form highlights packages of all 10 races on the day on our You Tube Channel – we call it scottishathletics TV!
So, our broadcasting plan is as follows:
Long-form highlights on Saturday evening from 7.15pm through to 10pm on the website of our broadcasting partners Vinco
Short highlights films of each of 10 races plus an overall round-up video on our You Tube channel through Saturday evening and Sunday
Vinco will be joined at Callendar Park by two operators from drone footage company UAS Flight Ops as we look to repeat and improve on the from-the-sky coverage produced at the 2018 event in Falkirk. We are hopeful having two operators will enable us to achieve closer shots from the drone.
Coverage will also be available to audiences in North America on runnerspace.com
BBC Scotland have also made a tentative commitment to attend and will help us showcase Scottish cross country across their platforms (in some form).
