Glasgow’s Queen’s Park will play host to Moira’s Run on Sunday (25 October) for the second year. The 5k is being held by the Violence Reduction Unit of Police Scotland to celebrate the life of Moira Jones who was murdered in 2008.
Hundreds To Run For Moira
The route will start and finish near the Queens Park Arena – easily accessed from the main gates at Victoria Road. The route will consist of a relatively undulating two-lap circuit along the perimeter of Queen’s Park.
Since Moira’s untimely death, the Moira Fund has been established in her memory to help those bereaved through murder. Last year saw hundreds brave inclement conditions to take part in the event, raising around £10,000 for the fund in the process.
The race warm-up will commence at 10.15am with the run scheduled for a 10:30am start. Finish Line timing chips will be issued between 8.45am and 10:00 am at race registration on the day of the event. All runners will receive a medal, a goody bag and a bottle of water at the finish line.
Organisers say: “We want to run to celebrate Moira’s life, to enjoy a wonderful park and to raise money for the Moira Fund.”
