Janelle McGurk, Event organiser and Active Stirling Athletics development officer said “Although the weather was poor, the standard of the championship was very strong with athletes ignoring persistent rain.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Active Stirling and school staff present on the day for sticking out the weather to make the event a success. Massive thanks and well done to all athletes for participating this year and I look forward to welcoming those eligible athletes back to the championships next year.”
