Join Medics against Violence for their second Run for Health Hope and Happiness in the beautiful Pollok Park on Sunday 12 June. The three races – 2K (under tens only), 5K and 10K – follow a relatively flat course within the grounds of the park. Last year's competitors commented that it was one of the more enjoyable events of their running year.
Medics against Violence was founded and is run by healthcare workers, and aims to prevent violence. They do this through educational programmes in schools, youth clubs and prisons and through training professionals of all sorts in how to support those experiencing domestic abuse. They are running to raise funds for a project called A Community in Motion, which works with four primary schools in Glasgow's East End. The whole community works together to improve health, hope, and happiness among their young people. By taking part in the race you’ll also help improve your own health and happiness and feel a huge sense of achievement at the end.
What can you expect? Three well organised risk-assessed runs, a timed 10K, a picnic lunch, a MAV medal, a goody bag, face painting and a huge amount of fun. The event is affiliated to JustGiving if you’d like to raise sponsorship.
The run is for everyone from the very young to the very old, welcoming runners and walkers of all abilities.
To enter go to the event website. Entry fees are between £5 and £15 depending on the race you choose and your age.
