Team Scotland

The Ayrshire Athletics Arena was proud to host Team Scotland as they prepared to compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

East Ayrshire Leisure  welcomed Team Scotland to the Ayrshire Athletics Arena which  became base camp for the athletes before they competed at Hampden during the Commonwealth Games.

Top stars like Eilidh Child, Eilish McColgan and Jamie Bowie work with local clubs as part of their build-up to the competition.

“It is so exciting and I think being based at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena in Kilmarnock will really keep us connected with the public,” said long jumper Sarah Warnock. “The facilities at the track look excellent and I think it is a good idea that there will be some community involvement, too.”

The impressive Ayrshire Athletics Arena also hosted a range of key regional and national track and field events that featured highly on the athletics calendar including the scottishathletics West District Championships.
