Linwood ONX Track Closed, Tues 6 Mar 2018

The ONX track is completely covered in snow and is currently closed by Renfrewshire Leisure.

Will update on here if the situation changes but unlikely to be any training on it this evening.


Training cancelled, Thurs 1 Mar 2018

Due to track and road conditions as well as red weather warnings remaining in place it will come as no surprise that training tomorrow night is cancelled.


Please everyone venturing out anywhere stay safe and don’t travel unless completely necessary.

Neilston Pad Run

Enquiry from Ronnie Melrose:
I’m the Vice President of Neilston Agricultural Society, and as you may be aware, we have traditionally held a local cross country run “The Pad Run” as part of the Neilston Cattle Show on the first Saturday in May. Unfortunately last year we did not have a Pad Run, as we couldn’t find anyone from the Agricultural Society to take on the organisation. I’m keen to get this event re-instated as there were quite a few disappointed runners last year, and I wondered if anyone from Kilbarchan would be able to assist us in making this happen. We will have a number of volunteers to help on the day with marshalling, but we need someone with expertise in running who knows what we need to do, to make this a runner in 2018.

If you think this is something Kilbarchan can help with, please give me a call on 0751 357 7606, and we can discuss further.
