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).

'IT WAS THE BEST RACE OF MY LIFE' So says MHAIRI HENDRY after a stunning performance at the British Champs landed silver medal - and a shot at selection for the World Indoors back in Birmingham in 10 days. Hendry clocked a PB of 2.01.30 to get inside the qualifying standard and improve on a great run at the Scottish Champs at the end of January when Laura Muir set a National Record. Now Mhairi features in the Herald today as Stewart Fisher reports from Arena Birmingham: http://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/other_sports/16031314.Stunned_Hendry_on_the_brink_of_Worlds_place_after_running_the_race_of_her_life/

Hazel Burr Brilliant!!! Fantastic guys!!! 16 Feb 2018 - 20:57
Gordon Innes New Road Running Group Victoria Park are preparing to setup a new Road Running section primarily for senior athletes and we're hoping to recruit heavily from our members parents. The group will be based at Scotstoun and will be open to all levels of ability. Whether you’re starting out in running for fitness or health or wanting to improve your 10k time, we’re hoping to give you all the help and support you need to meet your targets. We hope to recruit jog leaders, coaches and runners. The club will pay for any coaching courses that are required. We hope to recruit most of the group from within the large number of parents and existing senior members currently training at other venues. At this point in time we’re looking for volunteers who would like to get involved. Once we’ve got the names of a few interested parties, we’ll be arranging a meeting to discus which nights we’ll train, what routes we’ll run, how many will need to be trained as jog leaders or coaches and how much we’ll charge for membership. The jog leaders, like the runners will have to be of mixed ability. We wouldn’t expect an elite athlete to set the pace for a beginner and that’s why we need volunteers with varying levels of fitness and experience. The management at Scotstoun have agreed to let the group assemble, leave belongings and warmup within the confines of the stadium without charge. Anyone who would like to be involved should express their interest in an email to gordon@vp-glasgow.com. Please state if you’re primarily interested in being a jog leader (one day course) or if you just want to enjoy the running. Gordon Innes Secretary Victoria Park City Of Glasgow AC

Suzanne Gilmour There is a handful of athletes who are not on the start lists for VP as your SA membership is not up to date. You will be contacted by your team manager if this is the case as we received an email this morning with your names. So if you don’t see your name and you said you wanted to run please get in touch with your team manager and Scottish athletics. Thanks. 15 Feb 2018 - 15:25
Susannah Stewart Hi! I’ve just checked the start list and Orla stewart isn’t down in the under 13 category. Her SA membership is definitely up to date. Could you let me know if she has been entered? Julie McDevitt Barnett had checked about her date of birth and said she was ok to be put forward for u13. Thanks. Susannah 16 Feb 2018 - 00:19 Caroline Wright Hi unfortunately she is too young this year and still an under 11 for cross country...We would have loved to have her in the team and look forward to her doing it next year... 16 Feb 2018 - 00:55

Mickey Wright Think I might av a pair. Will look em out and bring Monday nite if u want. I won't take anything for them 02 Feb 2018 - 08:47 Alastair Dugless That would be good if you had and v kind of you. Could we laise through email amdouglas@hotmail.com 02 Feb 2018 - 15:35 Mickey Wright No worries 02 Feb 2018 - 15:36 Linda Innes Hi Alastair. We keep a stock of “previously loved” spikes in a box in our equipment store. They’re not locked away so you could have a look and help yourself. 02 Feb 2018 - 16:38 Alastair Dugless Is that at Scotstoun? 02 Feb 2018 - 17:20 Linda Innes Yes, in the equipment store (2nd last door on Left hand side near top end of track). They’re in a large box on shelf. 02 Feb 2018 - 17:33 Alastair Dugless I know it sounds a bit mean but my 11 year old son’s feet are rapidly growing and he is running Glas Schools xc. It is possible that he will only use them once and a new pair for a once only seems extreme. As I said I don’t mind paying for second hand. 02 Feb 2018 - 17:53 Mickey Wright Ive got about 3 pairs of 9 and a couple 8.5. Let me know if u still want them. Illl be there mon tues and thurs this coming week. 02 Feb 2018 - 17:58 Alastair Dugless Mickey. I will come down Tuesday if that is ok with you. Thanks 02 Feb 2018 - 23:52 Mickey Wright No worries. I'll bring them all and u can have whatever one the bairn likes best 03 Feb 2018 - 00:12 Alastair Dugless Mickey would 7.30 be ok to turn up tonight at Scotstoun? Alastair 06 Feb 2018 - 17:51 Mickey Wright Yea the missus will be there. She will get u in reception area m8 06 Feb 2018 - 17:54 Alastair Dugless Thanks 06 Feb 2018 - 17:55 Alastair Dugless Actually might be closer to 8. Is that still ok? 06 Feb 2018 - 19:04 Mickey Wright I'm not there but will let her know lol 06 Feb 2018 - 19:06
Alastair Dugless Mickey perfect fit. Many thanks Alastair 07 Feb 2018 - 13:27 Mickey Wright No worries. Happy to have helped 07 Feb 2018 - 13:32
Clare Campbell So at the moment we are predicting the two bends at the north stand will be closed due to the “big freeze” from 6 onwards! We will salt straights but as you can see the water on them from being salted today it might freeze back up! Fingers crossed! Still have infield and indoors available

Suzanne Gilmour This is just a reminder to all senior and master women that the deadline for letting me know if you wish to race at the Scottish cross country champs is Monday. Check your email for details of the event and either email or message me. So far I've got 6 women interested in competing. Would be nice to get a few more out. Thanks.
