Again the same three athletes appeared in the 1968 rankings, namely Ian MCafferty, Alex and Andy Brown. In what was a rather disappointing year for Ian McCafferty he still managed to break his own 2 miles Scottish Record with a time of 8mins 32.0secs which also placed him as the number one in Britain. During the season he also won the District Championships over both the 1 mile and 3 mile events.

Despite running slightly slower than last year, the Brown brothers featured in both the 2 mile and 3 mile rankings with Andy also appearing in the 6 mile lists. The medal collection was ever growing in the Brown household with Andy winning the West title in the 3 mile event ahead of Alex who picked up the bronze in both the 3 mile and 6 mile events.

This was the first year that the "Al Time Rankings" appeared and it was no surprise that Ian McCafferty topped both the 2mile and 3mile rankings.
