Men’s 10K Turns Ten

Men's 10KExcitement is building for the Men’s 10K which celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday (21 June). The race features a new course this year, with participants running around the heart of Glasgow from the Riverside Museum to Glasgow Green.  

The event was threatened with cancellation due to lack of funds before organisers GSi Events agreed to hold it. The company, who also organise Edinburgh Marathon Festival, will be holding an Edinburgh Men’s 10K on 1 November.
 
SAMH’s Get Active programme manager, Maurice Donohue, will be starting the Glasgow race. He told runABC Scotland: “With GSI Events taking over the event and developing a new route for this year, I think it is exciting times ahead for the 10k. It is important to have the continuation of the Men’s 10k as it provides a great incentive for men to come together at an event, where the camaraderie and support amongst all the participants is very much evident.
 
“The 10k event also puts a focus on the benefits of exercise and being active, where it can help with people’s mental and physical wellbeing.”

    Hopefully I will be at the start line on Sunday to make it 10 out of 10 Mens 10k events for me! The course route looks brillliant, well thought out and the weather forecast looks good. The run in along the banks of the Clyde willl contrast with the crowds in the home straight.

    Didn't realise it was a new course. I'd have been there if I'd checked it out sooner!
