Race Listing

SpeysideThere’s a decidedly festive feel to this weekend’s races with the jogscotland Christmas Cracker 5K in Cumbernauld and the Obstacle Tinsel Dash by Trailtroopers in Chatelherault Country Park in Hamilton. The Tinsel Dash is more challenging than your average Christmas race with a multi terrain course incorporating natural obstacles along with man-made ones. From Christmas to canines, Bark in the Park offers dog lovers an opportunity to run with their pooches at a 6K and 12K in Motherwell’s Strathclyde Park on Sunday. 

You can find lots of events and results on our race listings page and organisers can add their race details to our event listings by signing up here.
