New Year Bash 2020

On Friday 3rd January, we kicked off the Roaring 20s with our annual New Year Bash.

It was a busy night of 3,000m Championship action, invitational 600m races as well as open field events and we were delighted to start the decade with so many members of our Athletics Community!


Champions were crowned on the track with James McMurray (St Albans) winning the senior men’s 3K in a time of 8:00.38 while Eloise Walker (Edinburgh) ran 9:26.13 to take the women’s title.


In the field we saw two pools of shot put, long jump and high jump with a whole host of personal best performances – 29 to be exact! Notably in the shot put, U17 women Shannon Gough (Law) and Hannah Hamilton-Meikle (Team East Lothian) threw 11.46m and 11.30m respectively to improve on their bests. While the men excelled in the jumps with Adam Hannah leaping out to 6.07m in the long jump, the first time over 6m for the young Victoria Park athlete, and with personal bests elusive for senior athletes, special shout out to Lewis McGuire (Victoria Park) who made a promising start to the new year with his 2.10m clearance in the high jump.

Thanks as always to Bobby Gavin of www.thatonemoment.co.uk for capturing a fantastic night of athletics.

 

Glasgow 12's Fun Day 2019

Saturday the 21st of December again saw our annual Glasgow 12’s Fun Day! Budding young athletes aged 9,10 and 11 from across the length and breadth of our great nation (‘fae Peterhead tae Chester’) descended on the Emirates Arena for a morning of singing, dancing and most importantly athletics!  With festive tunes and Santa’s helpers spreading Christmas cheer, this years event saw 93 youngsters complete an adapted pentathlon (60m, 200m, hurdles, long jump and shot put) to win themselves a stylish GAA goodie bag and selection box! We were thrilled by all the fantastic performances, endeavour and enthusiasm shown by the youngsters and like Santa Claus himself we are already prepping for next years event.

 

Yuletide Open Graded Meet 2019

The day was not over yet.

On the same afternoon over 200 athletes (from U13 to Veterans) came together to finish the year at our annual Yuletide Open Graded Meet.

The women’s long jump kicked off proceedings with Victoria Park City of Glasgow’s Evie Grieg winning a competition that saw no fewer than six lifetime bests. The Woman’s shot was up next and produced enormous throws from U17 athletes Paige Stevens (Falkirk) and Shannon Gough (Law) throwing 11.96m and 11.24m respectively. Undoubtedly, our female field eventers were out in storm. Later on in the day, the women’s high jump saw two very competitive pools which culminated in Rosie Sharples (Falkirk) narrowly missing a new personal best of 1.68m (winning the A competition in 1.65m).


On the track, GB combined events internationalist Andrew Murphy started his 2019/2020 campaign well with a new 60m Hurdles PB of 8.33 with the U20 Edinburgh athlete Calum Newby pushing him all the way to the line to also clock a new PB of 8.33. Inverness’s Stephen Mackay won the 800m in 1:53.61 fending off a PB performance from Lothian’s Robbie Kennedy who crossed the line in 1:56.38. However they will have to watch out with Lewis Watt (1:55.67, Aberdeen) and Gary McPake (1:57.76, Cumbernauld) lighting up the 800m B race in personal best times, we could have new contenders in 2020.


In the flat sprints there was a whole host of Personal Bests across the 30 competitive heats. In the 60m, Scott Wylie (Victoria Park City of Glasgow) clocked the fastest time of the day running 7.23 while there were strong performances from youngsters Alex Connell (Kilbarchan), Dean Patterson (Larkhall) and Bailey Gallagher (Airdrie) registering personal bests of 7.36, 7.44 and 7.45 respectively. Alex and Dean had a wonderful afternoon of athletics also registering 200m personal bests in the penultimate race of the day while Brodie Young (Airdrie) closed our annual Yuletide OGM winning in a new personal best of 22.79.


Overall the event was a resounding success and we were delighted to see so many familiar faces one last time in 2019!

Thanks for everybody's support and for joining us for festive athletics on the 21st.

For those who couldn't alas! Luckily Innes Graham was at hand to document the whole thing for us!
