Endurance Squad Weekend – 21/11/14

This weekend the main event is the East District League Cross Country at Alloa, we would encourage all senior athletes to go along. Full details are on a post below. For anyone who can’t make Alloa, there will be a Saturday session at the Meadows this week, meet at 09.45 for the warm up, with the session itself starting at 10am prompt.

On Sunday, we have our usual long training run from Craiglockhart Sports Centre, meet in the top car park at 9am to head out on the Canal and Water of Leith paths to Balerno and beyond, mainly on paths and trails, just turn up and join in.

Scholarships in the USA

Edinboro University in Pennsylvania have two full scholarships available for female distance runners that can be competitive on the NCAA DII Level.
National marks in our distance events would be 2:10 800, 4:26 1500, 9:40 3000m, 10:35 steeple, 16:40 5K, and 34:30 10K.
Can you please help me get in touch with anyone who can run those times or better and would be willing to come the US for college? I would be more than happy to work with their national coach and around their schedule racing for Scotland. It would be great to get our athletes from Scotland as our mascot is The Fighting Scots and we were founded by Scottish immigrants a few centuries ago.

For more information on the University go to www.edinboro.edu

I appreciate anything that you can do!
