Southside Six Looking For Volunteers

Southside SixOrganisers of the Southside Six on 1 November are looking for volunteers to help out at the fifth hosting of the Glasgow event. The 16-mile race takes in six parks, starting and finishing in Queen’s Park.

First held in 2011, the event was created by six friends who, tired of running through long stretches of suburban roads, were looking to establish an event that included some of the city's many parks. The race starts at Queens Park at 11am and takes competitors through Kings Park, Linn Park, Rouken Glen Park, Pollok Country Park and Bellahouston Park before finishing back at Queens Park. 
 
Organisers, Allan and Nick, say: “We are already lucky enough to have a steady stream of volunteers who give up their time to ensure the day goes as smoothly as possible. However, the more the merrier, and we would love to have as many people helping as possible.
 
“If you are free on Sunday 1 November and are available to help out, or are a runner and know of any friends or family who would like to support you and the race, please let us know at info@southsidesix.org.uk, along with any relevant information such as preferred park and preferred role (i.e. handing out water, stickers or pointing people in the right direction!)”
 
Organisers plan on the route being the same as previous years though there may be some minor changes due to Scottish Water’s proposed work in Queen’s Park.
