Scottish Road Relay Championships
The first Scottish Women's Road Relay Championships was held on the 29th January 1972 under the auspices of the Scottish Women's Cross Country Union.
The Scottish Men's 6 Stage Road Relay Championship was first held on 31st March 1979 under the auspices of the Scottish Cross Country Union.
With the advent of the Scottish Athletics Federation there was a rationalisation of the Road Relay Championships. The male young athletes joined the young athlete female format in 1995. This relay format for young athletes was abandoned in 1996 and replaced by road running championships for individuals and teams.
The Senior women's event continued but women's teams also started competing unofficially in the 6 stage relay in 1996. Since 1998 women have run a 4 stage Championship in conjunction with the men's 6-stage relay.
A Master's Championship was incorporated in 2005 with the first women's teams appearing in 2006.
