Polaroid Eyewear Series Turns 30

Polaroid 10KThe Polaroid Eyewear 10K series, the longest running road race series in the UK, turns 30 next year. Entries will open soon, with the first event on 12 May in Helensburgh. 

Organisers have promised entrants there will be ‘a few treats in store’ to celebrate the occasion and have also asked participants for their ideas on how to mark the anniversary.
 
Chloe McAdam commented on Facebook with her suggestion: “Are there any runners who have raced every year or been involved every year? It would be great to highlight this somehow. Also a comparison of the race times and participation numbers over the years might be quite interesting.”
 
Established in 1987 through collaboration between enthusiasts and members of local clubs, the series has become one of the most popular on the circuit and has witnessed around 1000 runners taking part in individual events.
 
Following on from the Helensburgh race, the series continues to Clydebank on 19 May, Dumbarton on 26 May, and Vale of Leven on 5 June. 
 
Entries for the Polaroid series will be opening soon. runABC Scotland will have details as soon as they’re available. For more information, visit the event website
