Competition

We promote all aspects of athletics from track and field, road running, cross country and hill running competing in outdoor track and field and cross country leagues each year.

During the summer months, club teams participate in various leagues, and individual competition is available at Regional, Scottish and British events. During the winter months, cross-country competition takes place both for teams and individuals. Indoor track & field competitions, road running and mountain running competitions are also on offer for the club’s athletes. Winter and summer fixture lists are provided for members; updated versions of this can be found on the club website and also from Scottish Athletics www.scottishathletics.org.uk

When competing for the club members must wear a club vest (white with 2 red horizontal stripes) which may be purchased from the club kit coordinator on training nights. For more info on how to buy club kit please go to the Club Kit section.
