Scotland Set for Super 10K Sunday

Runners across Scotland get set for a big weekend with two of the country's top 10ks being held on Sunday (17 May). 10,000 will head for the south side of Glasgow and the unique atmosphere of the Morrisons Great Women's 10K. While Aberdeen hosts the NE's top race, the Baker Hughes 10K.

Late entries can still be made for the big Glasgow race at St Enoch Centre, 55 St Enoch Square, Glasgow G1 4BW - the pop-up shop is open today (Friday 15 May) 10.00am-17.00pm and tomorrow (Saturday 16 May).  And runners aiming for a target time on Sunday morning should look out for the pink-clad Puma Pacers, who will be carrying pace boards showing times from 45 to 65 minutes. Runners should expect light showers and moderate winds on race day but also possibly the best event atmosphere of any event in Britain.  

There will be plenty of excitement too in Aberdeen where anticipated light showers shouldn't dampen the enthusiasm of the big field in the Baker Hughes 10K - 5,000 entrants including last year's fastest runner Ben Hukins (32:34).  The City of Aberdeen Baker Hughes 10K Running Festival, to give the event its full title, also features a School 2K (P6 to S4), Family Fun Run and wheelchair race.
