Scottish Athletics held the Young Athletes Road Races at Battery Park Greenock on Sunday 17 March 2024. 

The event covered age groups from U11 through to U17.

Clydesdale Harriers  a good turn out at the event and our young athletes put together some really great efforts on the day. One or two were not feeling at their best but soldiered on anyway. It was great to see the effort and commitment from our youngsters.

It was equally great to see some of our under 11 athletes in competition as they competed in a separately organised event organised by Inverclyde AC. All our youngsters completed the course and achieved good positions overall.

Here are a few actions shots and race results  from the event on the day – Well done everyone for their hard efforts on the day!!
