Organisers of the eighth annual Cumbernauld 10K on Sunday (21 September) are hoping for their highest turnout yet. Last year saw around 500 competitors take part in the event which also features 1K and 3K fun runs for schoolchildren.
Starting and finishing at Cumbernauld’s Broadwood Stadium, the 10k attracts both recreational and club runners with a relatively flat course. The 10k is open to anyone 16 years or over, while the 1k fun run is aimed at primary 5, 6 and 7 children; and the 3k is for senior school year 1 to 4 pupils.
Local councillor Jim Logue said: “"The focus is on sport this year, with North Lanarkshire being a Proud Host Venue for the Commonwealth games, and part of the legacy is to encourage more people to be more active."
A 'Victory Mile' is also being held for the third year for wheelchair users, participants with special needs or anyone who would like to take part. There will also be activities in Broadwood Stadium to keep the spectators entertained while they wait to cheer on runners.
