Full results are now on the Scottish Athletics website.
A few spaces are left in our ‘come and try’ athletics sessions starting this Thursday or next (23rd or 30th August). Meet us a Dalkeith Schools Campus athletics track from 7-8.15pm. Monday sessions are now full. Contact email@example.com , 07949 094164 for further information.
The Scottish Age Group Championships are on this weekend (25/26 August) at Grangemouth Stadium. As was the procedure for the results at the recent Scottish Schools’ Championships, can any athlete, or parent/coach of an athlete who would like their result posted on the club website, and sent to the Advertiser, please send their result to me by 8pm on Sunday 26th August?
Shouting across the track on a Monday night at training that a result has been ‘missed’ from the website list is of no use, as by then the Advertiser print deadline has passed. This means that the result has not been ‘missed’, but has in fact not been received.
Any photographs would also be appreciated.
