Cross Country Race Information

• All athletes competing must be registered with Scottish Athletics. You can join or renew membership online

• All entries will be entered by the club but it is important that you let the Head Coach know before the closing date. All races have closing dates and no late entries will be accepted. We will need your Scottish Athletics membership code and date of birth for registration.

• Age categories for the cross country season are;

U11 – 1/9/2007 to 31/8/2009

U13 –  01/09/2005 to 31/08/2007

U15 –  01/09/2003 to 31/08/2005

U17 –  01/09/2001 to 31/08/2003

• Unfortunately a lot of winter races start at Under 13 and above.

• A relay event is made up of U13, U15 and U17 athletes.

• A club vest should be worn. If not please see the Head Coach or one can be purchased from Achilles Heel in Great Western Road.

• Spikes or trail shoes should be worn as most courses are run on grass.

• It’s a good idea to wear/bring plenty of warm clothing and a waterproof jacket. Wellingtons can be good to wear to walk the course prior to racing.

• Race numbers will be given out at the Garscube gazebo so make sure you are there in plenty of time.

• The Scottish Athletics Event calendar has more details of most of the races.
