With Strathclyde Park set to host the Commonwealth Games Triathlon this summer, a new 10k race in Strathclyde Park will give participants the chance to race on the newly refurbished track ahead of the Games. The Funding Neuro 10K on 17 May is hoping to attract at least 400 runners as part of the Strathclyde Park racing weekend.
The race is open to runners of all abilities and offers participants the option of following a training plan and using the ‘ask the coach’ facility to be ready for the race. If successful, organisers hope the race will become an annual event.
Bryn Williams, founder of the Funding Neuro, said: “We are really excited to be running our own event for the first time. Since we started out we have taken part in all the great runs around the UK, so it’s fantastic to be putting on a race in our name, and to be able to invite other charities to encourage their supporters to take part – this is all about raising awareness and having fun, with as many people as possible!”
The race will start from the water-side of Strathclyde Water Park Sports Centre, and costs £15 to enter with a donation going to Funding Neuro to help fund research towards cures and effective treatments for conditions affecting the brain and spinal column.
