Organiser's Description

The background

Glasgow South Road Runners organised their first race in 2019. Toota-Linn formed part of the Tour of Clydeside series. This allowed us to lean on some good experience in race organisation, whilst being left to make the major decision about route planning and marshalling. The event was a roaring success, with many runners proclaiming Toota-Linn as their favourite race in the series. 

Basking in that success, we studied the race calender looking for a gap in the market. A ten mile race on the Southside in our stomping ground seemed to be called for.

Route planning left us frustratingly short of that distance each time. We wanted a route to call our own. Not a rehash of the other races that use Pollok Park, and not loads of laps.

Pollok House is integral to the park, and we wanted to start and finish with that perfect backdrop. A route came in that was great, but again too short. So instead of battering proverbial heads against a brick wall, we change from a 10 miler to a 15km! And reserve the right to change this again in the future!

Route

Starting at the steps of Pollok House on the banks of the White Cart River, Pollok 15 quickly heads into the main park paths. A predominantly clockwise loop, with an inner anti-clockwise circuit, the route undulates round Pollok Park for three laps before returning to Pollok House
