Age Group Champs

The Scottish Athletics Age Group Championships were held at Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August.  VP-Glasgow are delighted to see this competition return to Scotstoun after a number of years’ absence; the number of competing athletes underlined the popularity of the venue - despite the very windy and wet conditions.  Very well done to all VP-Glasgow athletes who competed and many thanks to our Officials for turning out in such challenging conditions on Saturday.  Athletes and Officials had a much drier experience on the Sunday session.
