Over 3000 Complete 10 For Men

Robert Gilroy

More than 3,100 men were bathed in sunshine as they took part in the annual Men's Health Forum Scotland 10K in Glasgow yesterday. The event in Bellahouston Park coincided with Father's Day and was preceded by the inaugural Rascal Run which gave 350 youngsters the chance to take part in a 1k race.

First home in the 10K was Cambuslang Harrier Robert GIlroy (32:37), closely followed by Lorcan Cronin in 32:44 and Colin Thomas (32:49). The midpoint runner was Scott Wilson in 51:28.

Sarah McMilllan, from Men's Health Forum Scotland, said: "The Men's 10K has been another amazing success this year. It has been truly inspirational and a wonderful experience for everyone connected with it. It has once again shown that men in Scotland do care about their health - that they are prepared to take steps to improve their lifestyles and help others at the same time."

Before adding that there is no guarantee the event will take place again next year: "It would be a terrible shame if that tremendous foundation was allowed to disappear. We will work hard to try to ensure the Men's 10K returns next year and continues to be a very special event for some time to come. In order for that to happen we need the help of sponsors and funding bodies. Hopefully the success of this year's event will once again show just how important the Men's 10K is for the health and wellbeing of thousands of men throughout Scotland."

    Fantastic, well organised event and really enjoyable course. My first time at this event but will be back next year, hopefully.

    Agree with Nicky, fantastic event. I have done all eight, here's hoping I will be able to run it next year.

    Another fantastic day with an incredible atmosphere, brilliantly organised from cherished race numbers to rascal run. It would be a shame to lose such a great day for runners & organisers alike.
