Cross Country


Cross Country races involve fairly large numbers of runners with a wide range of ability.  Anyone fit enough to run the distance can compete for the club as an individual or part of a team, (ask your coach for advice about your suitability for competing).  All athletes run in Club Vests and must be members of Scottish Athletics. (Membership forms available at:

Details of races are usually sent to the club secretary and copies are handed out to athletes a week or so before the event. You can also usually find details on the Scottish athletics website.  It is advisable to arrive at races at least one hour before race start time in order to register, walk course and warm up.  Races start EXACTLY on time.  Warm clothing is essential and a change of clothes for wet weather is a good idea.  Races are very rarely cancelled because of adverse weather conditions.
