Scottish Short Course Cross Country Championships

The Scottish Short Course Cross Country Championship was first held at Pollok Estate, Glasgow on 17th January 1999. There was was a 4K U20 and Senior race for both men and women. In the first two years there was an U20 team race with 3 to count. It was intended as a warm up to the UK trials for the I.A.A.F. World Championhship that were first held in 1998. The senior men's race was 6 to count with the Women's event being 3 to count. In the season 2001-2 the men's team race became 4 to count and in season 2015-6 the Women's team race was changed to 4 to count.

The I.A.A.F. discontinued the World event in 2006 but the Scottish event continued.

In 2011 the race was run in January and then moved to November as part of the following season to establish the Short Course season in conjunction with the District and National Relays. At the November race the outgoing SAL President, Alan Potts, presented two trophies, the President's Trophy and the President's Cup, for subsequent winners of the men's and women's championships respectively.

In 2013-4 Championships for U15s and U17s were introduced over 2K and 3K respectively. The event was renamed the Scottish Short Course Cross Country Championships.
