All entries must be submitted online by clubs through the club portal. There will be no entries accepted on the day. Clubs are asked to identify a pool of eligible athletes at the point of entry, and will only confirm their final teams at declarations on the day of the event. This means clubs should register any athlete who they may wish to attend on their entry, as their final teams will be selected from this list.


The maximum number of teams entered per club will be restricted as follows:

Senior and Under 17 Men and Women – TWO teams only

Under 13 and Under 15 Boys and Girls – ONE team only

Any club wishing to enter additional teams should email events@scottishathletics.org.uk to be added to the waiting list. Teams will be contacted as soon as possible after final entries close to confirm whether their request can be accommodated within the final numbers.

Please note, athletes will not be able to enter if their scottishathletics membership is out of date, and/or if they have any other outstanding fees due to scottishathletics. If an athlete’s membership has expired, or is set to expire before the date of the competition, they must renew their membership in order to be eligible to enter. Clubs can also renew memberships on behalf of their members via the club portal’s ‘Athlete List’ if they wish.


This event is open to teams from affiliated Scottish clubs only.

Club Representation

  • Any scottishathletics athlete who is a first claim member of a non-Scottish club in addition to being a member of a Scottish club, should compete for their Scottish club in all scottishathletics events.
  • Any scottishathletics athlete who is a member of more than one Scottish Club can choose which club they intend to represent. This must be confirmed at the point of entry through the entry form. This is regardless of their membership status with each club (ie. 1st/2nd claim).
  • Athletes may only compete for one Scottish Club at scottishathletics Championship events over the course of any competition year (running annually from 1st October), i.e. athletes must compete for the same club in District and National Championships or indoors and outdoors (except track and field relays).

One athlete per team can step up one age group but must still adhere to their own rules. U11s cannot compete as U13s.


Once eliminated, a B athlete can move to the A team for the next round but only if they were declared in the A team as a reserve.


Young athletes cannot compete in both a combined event and a relay on the same day. However, a combined event athlete may be named as a reserve in a relay team and compete in the final on a later date.


Waiting Lists

  • Athletes wishing to enter an event that has reached capacity can sign up to the waiting list online. You will be contacted if spaces become available.
