Nigel Barge Memorial 10k Road Race & Junior Fun Run

23 Jan 2022

Organiser's Description

NEW FOR 2022 - CHIP TIMING!!

The Nigel Barge Memorial 10k is one of Scotland's oldest road races, being run now for more than 70 years and celebrated as one of the opening events of a new race year.

The race commemorates Nigel Barge who was killed in action in Dunkirk during World War II. Nigel was an outstanding officer who trained as a Royal Engineer and was killed at Dunkirk. He came top of his class at Woolwich (“The Shop”) and had helped prepare and map defences around Dunkirk and had assisted in the repairing of small craft to ensure the debarkation of his comrades. He was also a licensed pilot and a keen athlete. Nigel’s father was Kenneth Barge, late of the Bengal Lancers, a member of the committee of Maryhill Harriers. The race has been run every year since 1943.
