Young Athletes Road Championships

The National Young Athletes Road Championships were held on Saturday 18th March 2017 in Battery Park, Greenock.  Well done to all athletes who competed and performances of note are listed below.

U13B Team who won Silver consisted of Devan Miller (08:41), Russell Barnett (08:52) and Fraser Gilmour (09:02).

Lily Jane Evans-Haggerty put in another individual Gold medal performance with her time of 14:12.

U15G Team who won Silver consisted of Lily Jane Evans-Haggerty (14:12), Isla Britton (15.02) and Jenna Little (16:44).

Robbie Smith won individual Silver in the U17M with a time of 15:30.

Valencia Wright, who was our only competitor in the U13G age group, came a creditable individual 4th in a time of 09:13.

An extremely disappointing turn-out from our U13Gs resulted in an inability to field a team.

There was also the added frustration of having paid entry fees for athletes who did not attend.

However, to end on a high note, a huge well done to Gillian Black who has secured a place in the

GB Junior Women’s Team that will be competing in the IAAF World Cross in Uganda on March 25th.  VP-Glasgow are very proud of Gillian and it is good to see that she has been rewarded for all her hard work and commitment to her training.  Well done also to her coach, Mike Johnston.
