Energy Efficient Cooling

Iain Burr, one of our new volunteer coaches has made a financial contribution to the club on behalf of Energy Efficient Cooling of Killearn. 

This gift has allowed the club to purchase 10 turbo javelins which can be used both indoors and out by the vast majority of our athletes.

We're very grateful to Iain and EEC for this very generous gift.

The turbo javs will be stored within our locked cabinets next to the indoor track.  Any coaches who require a key to the cabinet should speak to Gordon.

Christmas Road Race 2016

The VP-Glasgow Annual Christmas Handicap Road Race was held on Saturday 17th December 2016.  The dry, sunny weather was very kind to our various good humoured Santas and Elves who set off in high spirits from Scotstoun Stadium to cover the “Short 2”.  There were only a couple of wrong turns which undoubtedly cost athletes a higher position in the field – Diane who experienced some confusion with yellow bins and Afwerki who thankfully was stopped heading east instead of west!

The return to the Club Deck for the results and prize-giving was met with a plentiful supply of Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, festive cakes and chocolates provided by VP-Glasgow.

Many thanks to all athletes, helpers and parents who turned out at a very busy time of year for this fun-filled race.  We hope you all enjoyed the occasion as much as we did.

Results are listed below.

Christmas Handicap

This is just a reminder that Victoria Park will be hosting our Christmas Handicap Race on Saturday the 17th of December. If you would like to take part, you should meet on the Club Deck at Scotstoun Stadium prior to 12pm in good time for a 12.30pm start.

We're hoping for a large turnout on the day with competitors aged from 9 to Masters. It's a special event and it's not just for the endurance Athletes.

Competitors should arrive bearing a gift for the Lucky Dip. Value in the region of £6 - £7. e.g. Selection boxes/sweets/chocolates for the younger athletes and Bottle of Wine/Box of Biscuits, etc for the adults.

Competitors and their siblings can only collect a present from the lucky dip if they donate a gift on the day.

The event is a handicap race, with the slowest athletes and those not familiar with the distance starting first.

The distances for the event will be 2 miles for the juniors and the 3 and a quarter mile MacAndrew Course for the seniors.

Parents will be most welcome and can either join the juniors on their run or assist with stewarding the course.

It's always a fun day with refreshments available on the Club Deck.

Hope to see you there.

Club Secretary
