Results

  • Performances should be submitted online to scottishathletics by the athlete taking part and state the distance covered in kilometres
  • Athletes must make their runs PUBLIC on their Garmin/Strava profile to allow results scrutiny.
  • Club results are calculated using combined valid runs by registered club members within the challenge timeframe.
  • In the team categories, the farthest runs over each 15 min or 30 min run by athletes from the same club will contribute to the ‘A’ team. The next best results will make up the club’s ‘B’ team, and so on to include all athletes competing. Clubs can enter as many teams as they wish.
