On Sunday 17th March at Riccarton Campus, Heriot Watt University (it is situated to the west of Edinburgh near Currie, between the A70 and A71) the National Young Athletes Road Race Championships will take place.  This is a pre-entry race and I will need names by Wednesday 27th February.  Race fees covered by club.

Under 13 Girls team from 2012 Championships
As the race is on the east coast to encourage you to do the race I am happy to hire a bus to take people through but I need a good number of young athletes to enter , I hope that we can fill the field with Calderglen teams in all the age groups as we have over 50 young athletes in the club who could do this race.  Our strongest age groups are under 13 Girls & Boys and Under 15 Boys. As well as individual prizes there is a team prize for each team of 3 young athletes in each age group.

The more Calderglen Harriers running makes all the better chance of success for the club and show the bigger clubs we have strong young athletes coming through the ranks.  So lets go for a record of high entries to the race, all working hard changing your running passion for glory!
