First posted this back in July. The race is next weekend and if you are looking for race you can still enter....

The Scottish Mid-Trail Champs will be held on Saturday 27th August in Fife and online entry is available.  Fife AC have kindly agreed to host the championships, with Strathmiglo as the start/finish location for races for all age groups.  There are medals on offer from U15 through to U20/Seniors/Masters.

There are U11 and U13 development races, too, but these are not part of the Scottish Championships as Fife AC host their ‘Festival of Trail Running’ and welcome all standard of athletes from beginners in this discipline to Scotland internationals.
