Road Running Group

This is just a brief update about our Road Running Group.

Eleven Jog Leaders met on Monday the 5th of March on the Club Deck at Scotstoun and we discussed how the group would be organised.

We hope to offer Road Running on Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursday’s from 7pm. Joining the rest of the club for the long Sunday run is also likely.

The management at Scotstoun have agreed to allow the group to meet, leave belongings and warmup within the facility.

They’ve also agreed to advertising signs being attached to the outside fence. Once the start date is confirmed, we’ll arrange for leaflets to be printed.

Some of the jog leaders are keen to meet up and explore routes in advance of our plans. If anyone has any experience of using route logging apps, they could maybe make themselves known to the group.

I’ve setup a “Victoria Park Road Runners” Facebook group and would encourage everyone to join. This will allow everyone to see what preparations are being made. If you have used Facebook before, you’ll find the group at this link:

A Jog Leaders Training course has been arranged for Saturday the 21st of April and we hope to have as many attend as possible. If you had previously stated an intention to run with the group but would now like to go on the course, let me know and I’ll send out the Joining information.

So far, 40 people have expressed an interest in joining the group. It’s all very positive.

If all goes to plan, we should have the group up and running by the beginning on May.
