Volunteers Wanted

Can you help? - Victoria Park Athletic Club is run by dedicated volunteers. The club would not exist or provide the service to athletes from the community we serve without the support of our volunteers.

 We're constantly recruiting and training coaches to support our athletes on each of our four training evenings. There is no minimum commitment required and you don't need to have a background in athletics in particular or sport in general. We welcome all volunteers and full training will be provided by the club.

If you would like to be involved in coaching at any level, please contact  Gordon Innes (Secretary).

Pictures

Group TrainingWe're always looking for fresh content to add to the website.  The site looks and feels more interesting when we have recent pictures of our current crop of athletes.  If you do take a good picture of any of our athletes, please send it to Gordon Innes for inclusion on the website.

We do also have an interest in pictures of past members in their glory days.  Don't hesitate to send them in, preferably with a bit of a story attached.

Linda Innes Superb effort! Well done to all our athletes, coaches and team managers who have made this possible. 👏👏 12 Sep 2017 - 23:24
Gordon Innes Great picture of Jamie Stevenson and Jade Henry presenting the match ball to the teams in the centre of the playing field at a filled to capacity Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday the 9th of September. I believe both Jamie, Jade and their dads had a great day courtesy of the Warriors. The Warriors beat Ospreys 31 - 10 in their first home game of the season.

Ralph Connolly Congratulations to Rab Daly who, aged 76, has successfully completed his 100th parkrun at Victoria Park today in a time of 26.28 which is his fastest for over a year. His medical team have long since given up telling him not to run and neither bad weather or the occasional Friday night cider appear to stop him as in the last year he has rarely failed to make the start line for the 9.30am 5k run. The next parkrun milestone is 250 runs although I know Rab's main focus is targeting the Vet 75 course record which is a remarkably swift 22.59
