Organiser's Description

SOUTH BY FIVE

South By Five returns for 2022

Based on the iconic Glasgow race, The South Side Six, South By Five visits each of the six parks over a 10 week period. A 5km event is held in each park, with runners able to enter single events or the whole series.

5 of the 6 races must be completed to complete the series

The six parks are:

Kings Park – Sunday 6th November

Linn Park – Sunday 20th November

Rouken Glen – Sunday 4th December

Pollok Park – Sunday 18th December

Bellahouston Park – Sunday 8th January

Queens Park – Sunday 22nd January

All races will start at 10.30am

The final race will be followed by a gathering and prize giving at a local bowling club, close to Queens Park.

 

Pricing

All races are free to enter. Places are limited so please only sign up if you intend to run. If your circumstances change, please let us know, we're happy to transfer places and may also have a waiting list.

 

If you are able we would like to encourage entrants to bring donations to the local foodbank in lieu of an entry fee.

 

Options

As with all Acorn Trails events there will be various additional options available during the sign-up process.

Charity

As per the previous South By Five, we’re staying local with our charity and once again supporting Give A Dog A Bone….and an animal a home.

They help support over 60s to afford a pet rescue companion. Tackling loneliness for the individual and homelessness for the animal, by removing the financial barriers to an over 60s person adopting a rescue animal.

They are based in Shawlands, less than a mile from Acorn HQ – now that’s supporting local!

Litter Pick

There will be an organised litter pick for each park that the series visits – it’s nice to put something back into the parks we use. Details on times and dates will be made available closer to the time. Acorn Trails conduct regular litter picks – find out more in the “We Care” section of our website
