Message from Scottish Athletics:
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. We would like you to use this footage in any way you see sit across any club platform – be that website or social media – as we seek to maximise the impact of the National XC.
These are only being hosted on the scottishathletics YouTube channel and therefore we are able to secure an accurate measurement on the number of views (which may help us in future years in terms of seeking to televise the event).
