VIRTUAL 4J STUDIOS SCOTTISHATHLETICS 5k CHALLENGE – 7th to 10th AUGUST 2020
In Association with RUN AND BECOME and SRI CHINMOY


scottishathletics have scheduled a new Virtual Challenge for the weekend of 7-10 August with athletes asked to run solo over 5k. This virtual event replaces the Scottish 5K Championships which were due to be held at Silverknowes on 7 August as part of the Run and Become/Sri Chinmoy 5k. Performances at the Virtual 5k Challenge will used for the selection of athletes to be invited to a proposed road racing physical event at Silverknowes on Friday, 4 September – the Run and Become/Sri Chinmoy Invitational 5k. This physical event is of course subject to the relevant Scottish Government guidelines at that time with the aspiration being that around 200 athletes (with an even split of male/female numbers) can race with distancing measures in place and athletes set off in waves before chip times are compared.
