DECLARATIONS/NUMBERS/CHIP COLLECTION

Open at 9.30am in the Sports Hall of Bellahouston Leisure Centre, 31 Bellahouston Drive.

CHANGING

There is very limited changing in the sport centre, come ready to run. Before going through the main entrance please remove muddy shoes.

CHIPS

Results are by chip timing. If an athlete doesn’t have a chip on their shoe they won’t be in the results.

NO CHIP. NO RESULT.

There is a separate envelope for each athlete containing Timing chip, tie cords,
instructions on how to attach chip to laces and athlete’s number.
Team Managers should collect only the envelopes for athletes who are competing.
This differs from the National in February when individual envelopes were all given out in a large team envelope. No team envelope this time.

PRESENTATIONS

Individual presentations will take place immediately after each race.
Team presentations will take place on the course as they are available.
In all 6 races teams are 3 to score with the exception of the Senior/Junior Men which is 4 to score.

Race Entries
A trial is ongoing for senior & U20 athletes to enter upcoming races through the website.  At the moment entry forms are available on the pages for the Renfrewshire AAA XC Championship on Sunday 17th November and the West District XC Championships on Saturday 7th December. We hope this will improve the communication of entries and give team managers & coaches a better indication on what events athletes want to participate in.

Allan Scally Road Relays, Sat 2 Nov 2013

Numbers short in attendance on Saturday afternoon at the Alan Scally Road Relays.

Andrew Dearie and Callum Hawkins formed a two man team to field an incomplete side in the race.

The route was over 4.8 miles with four runners needed to form a full team.

Andrew ran Leg 1 and came home in 25:16 with Callum running the 2nd leg in 23:01.
Callum’s time was the fastest on the day by 51 seconds and a new Course Record!

The previous record holder was his brother Derek Hawkins.

Well done to both on great efforts.

Full results are available in the fixtures section.
