Membership & Operational Rules
Any East District club affiliated to Scottish Athletics is eligible to compete. Only first claim members of these clubs may compete.
Each club or school that competes in the league has its own club number. In all races athletes wear that club number. Somebody from the club, usually the team manager, hands in a slip of paper after each race with the names of runners in order of finishing. The clubs provides the numbers.
Senior and U17 Women should have an "L" and U20 Women a "J". Masters women should have a "LV" after their club number.
In the Senior Mens Race Masters mark a large "V" after their club number while U20 Men mark a large "J".
There is no need to enter or declare on the day. At the end of the season each club or school pays subscriptions based on the number of finishers in all races through the season.
