A race aimed at helping people with drug and alcohol addiction through exercise will be held at Glasgow Green Football Centre on 18 September. The Recovery 10K is the last in a series of three events, following the Recovery 3K at Hogganfield Park in March and the Recovery 5K at Springburn Park in June.
The series, which was first held last year, is free to enter and is open to everyone. All participants will receive a medal and there will be a trophy for first male and female finisher. There will also be a ‘Competitor of the Series’ trophy for each category, awarded to those who make most impact over the three races. Participants who finish all races will receive a commemorative race T-shirt.
The series is supported by the Breathing Space/NHS Living Life and organised by John Milligan.
John says: “We want to hold a series of races to promote recovery from drug and alcohol problems in our city. We believe that running offers a fantastic opportunity for people to overcome their challenges. We hope that those who take part do so with pride and use this as a catalyst for change.”
