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).

JAX AIMS HIGH: More from the Team Scotland announcement earlier in the week - with pole vaulter Jax Thoirs. He finished in fourth place at Glasgow 2014 after losing out on a medal on count-back at Hampden so the incentives for Gold Coast 2018 are obvious. https://twitter.com/Team_Scotland/status/940951867932266496

Gordon Innes ** Christmas Road Race ** This is just a reminder that Victoria Park will be hosting our Christmas Handicap Race on Sunday 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.Christmas Road Race Competitors should arrive bearing a gift for the Lucky Dip. Value in the region of £7 - £8. 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. Gordon Innes Club Secretary

Caroline Wright Good Luck to all VP athletes heading to Irvine.
LINDSAYS DISTRICT XC - COUNTDOWN IS ON . . . The anticipation is rising for hundreds and hundreds of athletes as we prepare for three Lindsays District XC events at three venues around the North, West and East. And so does the watching and listening of the weather forecasts! Will we be deflected by 'Storm Caroline'? Hopefully not. Up for grabs as well as the District medals are Inter-District vests in various age groups, the chance to influence Scotland selection decisions and XC Grand Prix points for Senior athletes. Thanks, in advance, to those at Moray Road Runners, North Ayrshire AC and Lothian Running Club who are making plans to host the three events.
