Event Information

After a three-year break due to Covid, the Scottish Mid Trail Championships back to the beautiful Falkland Estate in Fife on Sunday, as part of the Fife AC Festival of Trail Running.

There are U15, U17 and U20, Senior and Masters championships organized in three mixed races (U15, U17 and Open). There are also initiation races for U11s and U13s.

Although entries haven’t quite returned to 2019 levels, it’s good to see a record entry into the U15 race.

The senior women’s race appears to be as open as it gets; the senior women’s team race looks like a battle between Cambuslang Harriers, Edinburgh AC and local club Fife AC.

In the Masters categories, current and former cross-country age group winners Jennifer MacLean, Heather Anderson, Janet Dunbar and Marguerite Martin line up to get more gold. Linden Nicholson is certain to win F70 gold.

Senior Men’s Championship sees new Scottish international Lewis Rodgers and Scottish champion in the 1500m Ben Sandilands (both Fife AC) up Jacques Donald (Dundee Hawkhill), Christian Graham (Lasswade AAC) and Hamish Hickey (central air conditioning). The team race will see a battle between a young Dundee Hawkhill against a not so young, but effective Cambuslang, with Fife AC somewhere in the middle.

The 2019 event saw Inverclyde AC Jonny Glen and Central AC athlete Fanni Gyourko take the senior gold medals. The Hunters Bog Trotters won the men’s team race and Edinburgh AC won the women’s gold medal.

As in 2019, Stornoway RAC had a long Championships weekend with 16 athletes competing across the 6 Championships.

The base for the day is Falkland Community Hall, KY15 7BX – thanks in advance to the hosts Fife AC, and all the officials and volunteers involved in organizing the event.
