Scottish Sprint Championships 2018

SOA Info/News info

Many thanks go to FVO for staging the Scottish Sprint Championships 2018 as part of their "Stepping into Spring" weekend.  Most of the stepping was into mud or the occasional snow drift still remaining on the University of Stirling campus.  The event consisted of two races, a Prologue and Final, but the total of both races counting towards final positions and results ( SOUL results counted separately). Full results are available on the FVO website including links to Winsplits and Routegadget.  The latter cannot do justice to the rain and mud.
