Kilbarchan’s £1.4m indoor project

Kilbarchan AAC have started construction work on their new Indoor Athletics Facility at Linwood Sports Complex at a cost of £1.4m.

The club now need to raise the money to fit out the facility with all the equipment necessary for training and competition.

To help, Kilbarchan AAC have set up a crowdfunding campaign and are urging those in the athletics community in Scotland to consider making a donation to help them reach their £50,000 target.

‘This development would offer us the opportunity to train in any weather, all-year-round, and make the On-X Centre a complete facility for elite and club athletes in Renfrewshire,’ said Jim Goudie, Kilbarchan AAC immediate past president.

‘We want to bring as many people we can into athletics and having this indoor facility will give people the chance to take up the sport, while keeping younger athletes from becoming disheartened with training sessions cancelled or in the pouring rain.’
