Scottish Hill Running Championship Series

With the XC season coming to a close, it’s a time when clubs and runners begin to plan the next races for 2018.   On behalf of the Hill Running Commission for Scottish Athletics, we’d like to advertise some of the range of Hill Running events happening over Scotland through the year, for Junior and Senior runners.  Hill running provides an ideal alternative or supplement to road events, as demonstrated by some of Scotland’s most successful road runners at London Marathon last year coming from a hill-running background!
