East District Cross Country League – Match 1,Stirling University, Saturday 17th October
Format: All age groups count equally towards championship totals as well as contributing towards their own age group. The races are mass participation style and all competitors need to be able do is to comfortably run the distances involved. As a team event there are no medals, but athletes throughout the field count towards club totals. Our aim is to have over 80 club athletes involved in each match. Last year Central were overall male champions and won senior women and under15/17 titles.
Location: The races will start and finish at the Airthrey Pavilion (golf area on the east side of the lakes). Car parking is not available at start/finish (any cars on grass verges or roadways will get tickets from University security). A map is available via the events page of Scottish athletics web-site.
Arrangements: To register find Central team managers at the Central AC tent in the start area and get a race number from them before the race starts. Do NOT go to Registration. All that is required is get a race number from team managers, and run. There is no race fee, the club covers that. A club vest is needed though, but spare vests will be found for newcomers.
Walk the course at the start, at the Central AC tent – one hour before first race start (i.e.11.00) walk the course with coaches and other athletes.
