Round The Houses 2020 - Update

As with many road races, it has reluctantly been decided, due to the current Covid 19 restrictions in Scotland, that it would not be safe to hold this year’s RTH 10K. All entrants will receive a refund  which will be paid back into the card they used for payment by entrycentral in August. The anticipated date for next year’s race is Sunday 18th April. I hope that all of you will be able to support our event next April.

Thanks again for all your support for the event, our committee would like to wish you well for the future.


Phase 3 Protocols

As the numbers coming back to training increase so does the possibility that coaches, athletes, parents and volunteers will not know what is expected from them. The committee have decided that all must consider what is required and that they acknowledge same by a google form. Coaches will then invite athletes back to training using open spaces. NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT = NO INVITE TO TRAINING. An email wil be sent to all members by Wednesday 22nd July with a lot more info and the links to the relevant documents.

Phase Three Update

Most will have seen the new guidance for phase three of the route map to recovery and it is great to see numbers allowed increasing. However with this increase comes new protocols we must put in place first. The committee are considering these as a matter of urgency so until we can put these protocols in place we will continue with phase 2 guidance for all.

Superteams II and Power Quad

Following on from the recent successful event scottishathletics have launched Superteams II which is a virtual event for athletes in the U11, U13 and u15 age groups. The competition will be form July 13th to 26th with athletes taking part in two events per week. Guidance and instructions will be given later. Parents will send the results weekly to the club who will in turn collate them and send for inclusion in the National Leaderboards.
