| East District Championships 2005|
|Pitreavie athletes took 23 gold, 16 silver and 9 bronze at the East District Championships over the weekend of 14th and 15th May 2005.|
|Due to a double booking at Meadowbank stadium the Scottish Athletics East District Championships were held at Scotstoun. There was fine weather both days, but on the first day the wind was against the sprinters and precluded any personal best performances, while on the second day the wind was with the sprinters and most of the time was far too strong for any performances to be noted as records. Pitreavie athletes of all ages and in a range of different events recorded a number of personal best performances.|
|Pitreavie athletes won 23 gold medals, 16 silvers and 9 bronzes.|
