All roads lead to the Emirates Arena this weekend for hundreds of Scotland’s younger athletes.

It’s an eagerly-awaited weekend of Age Group Champs taking place in Glasgow over both Saturday and Sunday.

And with almost 800 names of the start-lists it should be an exciting and hectic weekend before National medallists are confirmed at the U20, U15 and U13 age brackets for the 2017 Indoor Season.
