After sensational runs at the London marathon both Callum and Derek Hawkins will be competing for Team GB and are on route to compete at Rio Olympics 2016.
Both athletes attended Gryffe High School in Renfrewshire and continue to compete for Kilbarchan Athletics Club as well as Scotland and Team GB.
For the last few years Callum and Derek have been FAST Card holders.
Our F.A.S.T. card scheme is here to help talented Renfrewshire athletes with access to Renfrewshire Leisure training facilities and grant aid.
Funding Athletes Supporting Talent (FAST) is a partnership with Renfrewshire Sports Network, Renfrewshire Leisure and Renfrewshire Council which aims to support talented athletes competing for a Renfrewshire Club and residing in Renfrewshire. This program helps athletes achieve their individual aims and aspirations, either with free access to Renfrewshire Leisure facilities or a grant.
If you would like to follow in their footsteps and are interested in Atletics, Kilbarchan Athletics Club could be for you. For information about the club please Click Here KAAC
