Thank you to all athletes who have indicated your availability via Google form. For other athletes this is a turn up on the day event but if you can let us know in advance through the google form link below it helps team managers know who to look out for on the day.
Once you are at the event numbers can be collected from the team tent. Remember to bring pins.
Just a reminder that entries are now open for this event and can be made via individual Scottish athletics portals. Closing date is Wednesday 4th January at 5pm.

You may all be be aware from the recent Falkirk Council website article, the future of Grangemouth Sports Stadium may be under threat with the council facing a budget gap of £67m over the next four years. Grangemouth Sports Stadium is listed as one of the 133 Council-owned building that will be available for community asset transfer. Our understanding of the situation is that if Falkirk Council cannot transfer these 133 buildings to the community, then they will close.
There has been no consultation with scottishathletics on this process, and they absolutely share the concerns of the full athletics community on the national and local significance of Grangemouth Sports Stadium as a competition and club training venue.
Scottish Athletics have reached out directly to Falkirk Council and sportscotland to better understand the situation and the process. They will update us when Falkirk Council respond.
In the meantime, we would encourage you all to participate in the ‘Strategic Property Review’ survey (accessible in the link above) or link below.

We are currently in urgent need of a Press Officer for the Club. We have had much success over the years and have had the full support of our local papers in printing articles about the Club, their activities and fantastic results however unfortunate to say we lost our Press Officer as they had to step down from the role in the past year or so and we have never managed to replace them.
We appreciate we have had very little exposure in the local press lately as we don’t have anyone allocated to that role. In the past this had worked very successfully with our previous Press Officers liaising with such Papers directly.
Please reach out if you think that you can be that person to help us with fulfilling this position. We did have plenty of volunteers coming forward recently however this specific Role was not one that anyone had shown an interest in doing.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help
