Linlithgow Athletic Club Newsletter

March 2011


Senior Section

The club is starting a section for seniors. This will mostly be a running section, and aims to fill the gap between JogScotland and the more elite running clubs. If you would be interested in finding out more about the new section then please drop me an email to


New Members

Welcome to all our new members who started coming along in January. I hope you’ve been enjoying the sessions and will decide to join up for the year!


Membership Forms

You should by now have received your 2011 membership forms. Please complete these and return as soon as possible. If you decide not to renew then please let me know.


Parent Helpers

As we have had quite a few new members joining the club recently, it seems like a good time to ask if any parents would be willing to help out with the running of the club.

We are looking for parents who would be willing to help at the Wednesday sessions or at the Linlithgow 10k and Fun Run at the end of September.

If you would be able to do this, please feel free to volunteer, either on a Wednesday at the club or just drop me an email to


Scottish Athletics

As you may be aware, your annual club membership fees include Scottish Athletics membership. You need to join Scottish Athletics if you want to take part in any of the Forth Valley League meetings. At the moment, Scottish Athletics does not charge young athletes for their first year’s membership, however this is changing at the end of the month.


Please can we encourage all members of the club to ensure they are Scottish Athletics members prior to this date as this will save the club some money. You can join free online at Membership type is Junior. Your first claim club should be Linlithgow AC. Upon completion of the membership forms you will be given a number beginning with SA – if you can let me know the number, I’ll update our records.


Please visit the club website – there is a lot of useful information there such as dates for Cross Country and Forth Valley League meetings. Site is


Forth Valley League

The Forth Valley League meetings are all on Saturdays this year. Dates for your diary are:

First Event                             Sunday 30th April pm

Second Event                        Saturday 18th June am

Again, parent helpers would be much appreciated, especially at the 18th June meeting as Linlithgow is one of the host clubs that day.
