Competition Information

Event: Scottish Athletics West District Cross Country Championships

Date:    Saturday 6th December 2014

Venue:             ON-X Linwood, Brediland Road, Linwood, PA3 3RA


Individual medals: 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each race except Masters Over 50 (1st only).

Team medals: 1st, 2nd and 3rd with 3 to count, except Senior Men (6) and Senior Women (4).

There will be team medals for the 1st Masters Team only (3 to count).

Important Notes
The Senior, Masters and Masters O50 races are combined for each gender.
All athletes may count in the Senior championship race (individual and team) as well as their own age category, therefore a Masters’ athlete can count in both the Senior AND Masters individual and team races.
However, a Masters athlete cannot compete in both the O40 and O50 individual championships – only their own age category.
In scoring the Masters team placings, only Masters athletes are considered.
Medals will be presented on the podium (near the Start/Finish area) shortly after each race.
Results will be posted on the Scottish Athletics website.
Postcode for Sat Navs is PA3 3RA.
