About Scottish Athletics at the Reno Celtic Celebartion

Matt Hobb’s has taken over Athletics this year, so Michael Perrin might help out as Vice-President, but Michael is still very much around. Both are participating on the Celtic Celebration’s board. 

We invite interested people to come out and learn more about the unique sports from the Highlands.  Ladies and children are welcome.

If you are a Highland athlete and would be willing to work the clinic or demonstrate your sport, please contact athletics (at) renoceltic (dot) org.

Children’s Events
We will have athletic events for children.  Please check the schedule at the event for the event and times.

Volunteers Needed! If anyone would like to help with Athletic Games or Children’s games in the future please fill out our volunteer application or email volunteers (at) renoceltic (dot) org.
