The next instalment of Cross Country fun is just around the corner (and along the A92 a wee bit!). The National Short Cross Country Championships take place this coming Saturday (11th ) at Kirkcaldy High School, Dunnikier Way, Kirkcaldy, KY1 3LR.
The Men’s race starts at 1:05pm. The race is 4000m long taking in two laps of a grass course. I’ve attached a course map and the Information from the SAL website for Info. If you want to arrive in time to see the ladies racing, they start at 12:40pm.
Here is a link to the SAL page with all the info on it – http://events.scottishathletics.org.uk/events/19968-17481-lindsays-scottishathletics-national-short-course-xc-championships
Karen and myself will pick up the numbers at declaration on arrival and distribute when you all turn up. We are heading through early and partaking in Kirkcaldy parkrun in the morning so should be on site and have the tent up all ready for you.
Here’s is a list of the men entered for purposes of lift sharing, 14 in total –

All other vehicles must park at the NHS Car Park off Whyteman’s Brae – Please park responsibly (this is only a 5 minute walk).
Declarations will take place within the Kirkcaldy High School, Karen and myself will take care of this.
Masters Athletes will be given a number for their front and an Age Banding (40, 50 or 60) for their back, make sure either Karen or myself remember to give you a second number for your back if it applies. Remember and bring pins with you.
Results are by chip timing. If an athlete doesn’t have a chip on their shoe they won’t be in the results. NO CHIP. NO RESULT.
Disposable CHIPS will be in use at this event, therefore there is no requirement to return this at the end of the race.
