The 2015 Men's 10K has been cancelled due to organisers being unable to secure funding for the event. The race has been held in Bellahouston and Pollok Parks since 2006 but was under threat due to increasing uncertainty over sponsorship.
Event manager, Sarah McMillan added: “I feel so grateful to all the men, event partners and volunteers who have been a part of our journey over the last 10 years. From an initial idea to ‘get a couple of hundred men running round a park’ to celebrate Men’s Health Week, to an event which has had coverage all over and attracts men from all backgrounds, of all abilities and of all ages.
"We really regret that the project is shutting down, not just because of the positive difference it makes to so many lives, but for the charities whose fundraisers raise hundreds of thousands of pounds each year as well as all the wonderful local businesses who supply the event weekend.”
This year's event attracted 3000 runners and incorporated a 1K for children under 14 and a 'Rascal Run' for toddlers. For more information, visit the Men’s 10K website.
