UNELIGABLE ATHLETES

Athletes can only run once, any team with an athlete running a 2nd time will have the whole team removed from the results.

Athletes who compete in a SAL championship MUST be current members of the Scottish Athletics Membership Scheme.

Furthermore, an entered athlete MUST not be substituted by a non-entered athlete at any time.

Non observance of the above leaves the athlete at a health risk in the case of a wrong identification of an athlete and makes the results invalid as an historic record.

LITTER

At previous year’s events there was an unacceptable amount of litter left in Cumbernauld Park. Please put litter in the bins provided or take it home.
