From Commonwealth Games to North Berwick Law race!

We need some stewards for the out and back short course, some people at top to hand out bands and some numerate, clever folk to help with result s and registration . If you can help it is a lovely evening , great ice cream, lovely sunsets and a quality pipe band,
Thanks in advance

Endurance Squad Weekend – 25/07/14

There will be a Saturday morning session at the Meadows, meet at the green pavilions at 09.45 with the session starting at 10am sharp. On Sunday we have our usual long training run from Craiglockhart Sports Centre, meet in the top car park at 9am and head out on the Canal and Water of Leith paths to Balerno and beyond, with run distances of 12-16 miles mainly on paths and trails just turn up and join in. The CG Marathon is on Sunday and there will be a few heading to Glasgow to support at that, so there may also be a Saturday morning long run, please check the Craiglockhart Sunday Run facebook page for any updates/discussion for anyone not making the normal Sunday run.

There are three tickets available for the morning athletics session (10am-2pm) at Hampden this Monday (28th July), the tickets cost £30 each, but Niamh is happy to sell these at under face value, (say £20 per ticket or best offer?) if interested reply to this post or contact Garry who will have the tickets by Saturday.

As a reminder of our other sessions, on Tuesday we have two track sessions, one at Saughton at 5.45pm and one at Meadowbank at 7.15pm. Wednesday is a woman’s only session at the Meadows starting at 6pm and on Thursday we are at the Meadows at 7pm.

Nigel Holl, chief executive of scottishathletics, believes the time is right for all in the sport in Scotland to ‘Plan Your Journey’. And he’s not talking about travel routes to Hampden.

The Commonwealth Games loom large in Glasgow with a team of 58 athletes set to compete for Team Scotland in track, field and marathon. But the wider sport will continue way beyond the action over eight days and Holl wants clubs, coaches and athletes to be already thinking ahead.
We have Senior Champs and Age Group Champs coming up in August and online entry is open for those events in Kilmarnock and Aberdeen respectively – click on the links for each event below to enter now:

Come On In – The Games Have Begun!

Just back from Celtic Park and the CWG opening ceremony at 2 o’clock this morning – What a show!! The atmosphere was electric – buzzzzing.

EAC GirlsI have since watched the TV coverage, and while you get a fuller visual picture of the event you most certainly miss the atmosphere and the involvement / connection with the crowd in the stadium – it was bouncing. Even the uniforms looked good from a distance.

Great picture of three of our EAC Girls in the athletes village prior to the ceremony.
