Win 50 tickets for your club to go to the televised international athletics meeting in Grangemouth - also the inaugural Golden League Final - on the evening of Wednesday 26th August (Grangemouth Stadium, Falkirk).
All you have to do is ensure that your club completes the most Equity surveys by Tuesday 18th August to win.
scottishathletics is committed to achieving the Equity Standards Preliminary Level and in order to do this we need your help to complete the audit. It takes less than five minutes to do, so please click on the link below and encourage your club members to do the same:
The Equity Standard has four different levels and scottishathletics has achieved the first 'Foundation Level' and is now going for the next level up - 'Preliminary Level'.
The purpose of the Standard is to develop the organisation in terms of the culture, policies, leadership and people to promote democracy and fairness within the sport. It also aims to improve the services offered such as programmes, communications and customer service - however, in order to find out where our gaps are in achieving Equity, we need as many members as possible to complete the audit.
Many thanks for your help.
Seventeen members of the club made the journey to Beadnell on Sunday to take part in the popular Northumberland Coastal Race, a 14 mile route over mixed terrain. The race started in 1979 with just 12 competitors and now has over 1000 runners vying to enter the event. The course takes in Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster Village along the route, finishing on the beach at Alnmouth.

Well there you go then. The results of another thrilling, yet ultimately pointless, poll have been collected, collated, sorted and ….. well briefly looked at to be honest.
Quite a big response this time round, and its interesting to note that while 26% of you think MP3 players are OK for training the vast majority believe they should be either banned from races or even have no place in running at all (53% support a ban while a further 16% think they have no place in running).
One solitary runner voted that they couldn’t live without theirs.
I said, “One solitary runner voted that they couldn’t live without theirs”…. OI !! I said “One solitary runner voted that they couldn’t live without theirs”… If you took those things out your ears you might hear me!!
Cast your eyes to the right and to the top for another poll.
