There is shorter distances and field events but the events mentioned are the ones that would best suit anyone from Calderglen Harriers.

You will need a running vest for this event so if need see me to get one. The vest cost is £12, you will need to be a member of Scottish Athletics and if you are serious consider looking into buying running spikes.

I will put a link up to be a member of Scottish Athletics:

The day of this event I can't be there as I am planning to take part in another race myself.  If any of the other Coaches or Parents want to take a lead on this be my guest.

This is a facebook group as well.
