SUMMER SPRINT GALAS

The brain child of Josephine Moultrie during her tenure as the GAA Coordinator, the GAA Sprints galas were an innovative solution to aid in the rebirth of Scottish sprinting. Performance focused competitions the Galas core aim is to provide a platform for athletes to run fast, develop key competition skills and aid in the growth of a Scottish sprint community.


Unlike your traditional open graded event the sprint galas utilise performance seeding and athlete friendly timetabling to optimise the energy of each individual race creating an environment perfect for PBs! Prize pot initiatives are employed to entice the quickest athletes from across Scotland and beyond creating head to head battles to enthral and inspire!

We’re very proud to boast about the success of these events with not only superb personal best rates but also notable engagement from Scotland’s elite and increased performance at the very top level.  


Open to all the galas cater from young to old, from novice to elite. All we ask is that people come healthy, enthusiastic and prepared for the unpredictable Scottish weather.

For a detailed history of the sprint galas please check out the article that Josephine has kindly written here!

 

2020

After a very successful 2019 season, we were so disappointed to cancel our 2020 outdoor season.
We look forward to the return of outdoor competitive action in Spring 2021.
