Lothian and Border Trials, Meadowbank, Sunday 5th April
The entry form for the Lothian and Border Trials can be downloaded here, the closing date for entries is 22nd March
The National XC event at Falkirk was a hugely popular event with the finisher numbers – at close to 1600 – the best the championships have known in 21 years of Men and Women competing at the same venue on the same day across the various age groups. There were 797 athletes finished in the Senior races.
It was a remarkable response from our clubs and scottishathletics fully appreciates that commitment to competition and support from all concerned.
Now we have a series of race videos from the event on Sunday which capture so much of what happened at Callendar Park in difficult conditions.

Apologies for the errors in the first set of results.
I had to buy new computers for this event and they seem to have brought some strange gremlins with them.
The first round of the track events seemed to go alright, barring a few athletes running slightly out of lane, this does cause problems
However, the main problem was that a 3rd computer which seeded all the athletes from the first round into the second round. This worked well, but when I sent the images to the “Reader” computer it occasionally provided the wrong names, and so the results were a bit “crazy”. I did not realise this until a few “great parents” queried some of the results.
I have tried to sort out everything I can see wrong, but who knows. That’s technology!!!
I hope this set of results are more accurate, but don’t be shy in challenging me….only another night without sleep…
