Details of the upcoming Senior Endurance Cross Country Championship can be revealed. Not all ‘traditional’ XC races have been announced – no Lanarkshire AAA event – so the championship will be slightly shorter than normal. It will consist of a series of five races: two team relays and three individual races.

23/10/2021: National Cross Country Relay Championships, Scone Palace, Perthshire – details here
06/11/2021: Short Course Cross Country Championships, Lanark Racecourse, Lanark – details here

Three points are awarded for participation in the West District XC Relays and the Scottish National XC Relays.
Points are scored according to finishing times for the individual races – 6 points for the fastest time, 5 points for second fastest, and so on, with 1 point for sixth. All subsequent finishers also score one point.
All races shall count towards your total. There are separate male and female championships.
With that in mind, entries for the first race of the season – West District Cross Country Relay Championships – ARE NOW OPEN. Full details are available here. Please note the affiliation rules regarding Scottish Athletics membership.
It should be stressed that you do not need to be amongst the fastest to participate. This is about representing the club, racing hard, and having a lot of fun with your teammates. The more the merrier!
Entries for the team relays are performed by the club. So if you want to take part, please let Alan Strang (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and arrange payment of a £5 deposit. This can be paid in person, by bank transfer, or by PayPal. Only once this deposit has been paid is your place in the squad confirmed. This deposit will be refunded on the day of the race.
Our closing date for entries is Tuesday 21st September.
