UPDATE – Scottish National Cross Country now Sunday 22 February 2015.
Scottish Athletics Article (full calendar dates below)
It may be a motorway gantry slogan for travel for the Commonwealth Games, but it applies equally well for athletes and coaches at all ages and stages of their career pathway.
At scottishathletes we are fully aware of how important it is to look ahead and to prepare training plans and competition schedules.
That’s why we’re working as hard as we can on the communications side to bring you the details required by athletes, coaches, clubs, parents and officials about forthcoming events.
The track and field season is building up for a truly spectacular summer but ‘better never stops’ (to coin another slogan) and already arrangements are being made for the forthcoming cross country season and the indoor season 2014-2015.
So now we’ve a list of dates and venues prepared here which covers significant championship events through the winter and running right through to two road race events next March – the Junior Road Races and the annual 6/4 stage Relays.
That’s fully eight months hence and we should add here that one or two details in the list may be subject to venue change as final details are confirmed.
The National Cross Country will return to Callendar Park, Falkirk, once again while the Indoor Season events take place at the Emirates Arena, as has been the case for the past couple of years.
*Ron Morrison and Alex Jackson have both indicated their desire to step down as Convenor and Secretary of the Road Running and Cross Country Commission after many years of dedicated and excellent leadership.
We are keen to hear from anyone who may be interested in taking on these important organisational roles. Please firstname.lastname@example.org
