1500M & 5000M
Friday 30th July
There will be a 'prize pot' of £400 available to the overall fastest in each of the men's and women's events IF they break the following target times:
1500m Men: 3.46 Women: 4.18
5000m Men: 14.15 Women: 16.25
If only one athlete achieves the time he or she will claim the prize pot. If more than one winner achieves the times it will be split equally (i.e. if two winners break the times they will get half
the pot, etc - to a maximum of four athletes sharing the pot).
We are pleased to confirm that Glasgow Life have given us permission for spectators on Saturday afternoon (as long as we are following the covid protocols put in place) - this is great news, but we need everyone's cooperation to ensure this runs smoothly.

Athletes - we expect you to declare at least one hour before your event (final declarations will be at 2000)

FRIDAY 4TH JUNE
Miler Meet: 800m & 3000m
After 17 months, a last minute venue change and a lot of help from Scottish Athletics/ Kilbarchan AAC, we were delighted to finally host some racing last night at a sunny Linwood!
With a PB rate at around 60%, last night proved emerging talent from the grassroots is still sprouting despite a year of restricted Athletics.
Garscube Harrier Louisa Brown (a talented swimmer that’s developed a taste for running over lockdown) stole the show in the Women’s U17 3km Championships taking gold and climbing on to the U17 All Time list jumping to 6th.
Talented northerner Megan Keith (Inverness Harriers) also produced a performance that takes her to 6th on the All Time list for U20 while taking the Championship for that age group.
In the Masters category Fiona Matheson maintained her record breaking season running a phenomenal 10:58.85.
Not to be outshone by the ladies, Kane Elliot (Falkirk VH - 8:14.73) showed top form in the U20 Men’s winning a battle with Giffnock North’s Duncan Robinson (8:15.90) both setting PBs in the process!
Corey Campbell (Team East Lothian) stormed home with the U17 Men’s title with an outstanding 8:36.09 a time which takes him 7th All Time.
We’d like to say a special thanks to our wonder officials and volunteers for running an exceptional and covid safe meeting and Bobby Gavin for capturing the evening.
SCOTTISH 3K CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020
We kicked off 2020 with our annual New Year Bash (inc. GAA Miler Meet & Scottish 3000m Championships).
With Invitational 600m races, open field events and a busy night of 3,000m Championship action we were delighted to start the decade with so many members of our Athletics Community!
With a night full of personal bests, returning champions and rostrum debutants it's hard to name but a few highlights;
James McMurray of St Albans won the senior mens's race, running a a new PB of 8:00.38, and came painfully close to taking the £200 GAA prize pot.
In the women's side, U17 Central athlete Dorottya Csuta had a fantastic run (9:42.46) on her way to achieving the Hungarian Qualifying time for the Summer European U18 Champs.
Eloise Walker, not to be shown up by her younger colleague, produced a Scottish Best Performance in a run that saw her come home in 9:26.13.
Thanks as always to Bobby Gavin of www.thatonemoment.co.uk for capturing a fantastic night of athletics.
