Bella September Event Now A Double Header

Runners at Bella 5K

The popular Bella 5K, organised by Bellahouston Road Runners, will be joined by a 10K race for the first time this year to create a new double-header. The 5k/10k event takes place on Sunday 1 September in Bellahouston Park. The Jimmy Irvine Bella 10K retains its late autumn slot on Saturday 9 November.

The 5k and 10k routes are flat and fast, run entirely on tarmac paths within the park. Entries for the 5k are limited to 200 competitors with a minimum age of 12 and the Bella 10K will have a limit of 650 competitors, with a minimum age of 15. All entrants will receive a technical T-shirt and there will be music and race commentary throughout the day.

Bellahouston Road Runners president, Robert McEwan, told scottishrunningguide.com: "The Bella 5K is an established and popular event on the race calendar. For 2013 we've decided to add a 10k event which makes logistical sense as most of the arrangements are in place already - marshals, timing system and post-race catering. We aim to achieve the standards we've set for the 5k over a number of years for the new longer distance event."

Entries for both races close on Wednesday 28 August. To enter, visit Entry Central. For more information visit the Bellahouston Road Runners website.
