Organiser's Description

Rouken Glen Country Park

Rouken Glen Park is a 143 acre historic park located around 10km south of Glasgow. It dates back to 1530, when the area was know as Birkenshaw, meaning birch wood.

Rouken Glen Park got it's name from the mill in the estate known as Rokandmyll.

Race

Race start will be 10.30am

The race will start and finish adjacent to the Davieland Road entrance to the park, near to Whitecraigs train station.

Registration will be from 9.45am. This is at the opposite end of the park to what most people are used to. Please bear this in mind.

The What3Words address for the start is........///causes.pill.jumps

The nearest train station to registration and start/finish is Whitecraigs.

The route

It's roughly 8km (two x4km laps) or just over 4.5 miles in old money. It's a trail race....that's an 'ish'. Bit of mud - hopefully. Some incline. Some decline. And some faster paved bits.

The route will cover a large area of the park and is definitely multi-terrain. Weather conditions between now and then will define what shoe type will be best on the day!

Entry

Just £12 for affiliated runners. Entry includes a £2 donation to Glasgow Women's Aid

There will be no entries on the day. 

As a "pop-up" event we are not offering any race specific merchandise. Acorn Trails buffs will be available.

Entry is limited to 100 runners.

Finish line

Manually timed, so keep your race bib pinned in a nice clear place. Shirt or shorts is fine as long as we can see it on your front.

Prizes

There will be prizes for the winners. There will also be a couple of spot prizes available.

Race Brief

A race brief will be emailed out the day before the event. Please take the time to read this. Many of the conditions of our race (and possible future events) rely on you the runner heeding the regulations that are in place for you and everyone elses safety.

Can't wait to see you on the day…
