Entries are now open for this year’s Paisley 10K and Fun Run on Sunday 31 August. 1,500 competitors took part in last year’s road race and organisers are expecting an even bigger turnout in 2014.
The 10k starts and finishes in the centre of Paisley and as one of four ‘Heart Towns’ in Scotland, all proceeds from the day will go to British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland. The race is open to all and is aimed at both serious runners and those competing for the first time. Once again the race will be on a flat, fast course, which will take participants to the west of the town after a loop around Paisley’s historic town centre. Competitors can take in the sights of Paisley Abbey and Town Hall buildings as they begin and finish the race in County Square.
For families, friends and youngsters there is the chance to take part in the Fun Run and the other activities taking place along the route. The Fun Run is approximately 3k and participants are encouraged to run, walk or stroll their way around the course. Each runner will receive a medal for their participation and there will be trophies awarded to the winner of each age category in the 10K.
