Red Star Championships

The Red Star Open Championships were held at Crownpoint on Saturday 18th June.  The weather was warm and sunny – much like the over-all attitude at this event.  Enthusiasm, participation and the level of support for each other was very evident throughout the day.  11 x VP-Glasgow athletes took part and every one of our squad won at least one medal so I am a very proud Team Manager.  Special mention to Lauren Gallagher who won 4 x Gold medals and achieved 4 x PBs in her Race Running events.  Other performances of note are listed below.
