BRITISH OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS - SENIOR WOMEN

This section shows all the Scottish medal winners from the national championships of Britain for each year. The championships are The Women's Amateur Athletic Association Championships (1922-1991), The Amateur Athletic Association Championships (1992-2006), The UK Championships (1977-1993), The British Athletics Federation British Championships (1997) and the National/UK/British Championships held under various names and sponsors. 

From the above, it can be seen that there were two championships during 1977 to 1993, the main AAA/WAAA Championships and the closed UK Championships, and in 1997 where the BAF British Championships doubled as the World Championship Trials.

In the following lists, both championships are recognised but medals gained in the lesser UK Championships (1977-1993) and the AAA Championships (1997) are marked $ and shown in italics

Note: The AAA was an open championships until 1995 and in 1997, but in 1996 and since 1998 the championships have been closed, with foreign competitors allowed in the 10,000 metres and the marathon (held in conjunction with the London Marathon) but not placed in the championship.

 

This page lists all the Scottish medallists in the women's events (see separate page for the men's events). The leading Scottish women's medal winners are as follows:
