58th Tom Scott Memorial Road Races

05 Apr 2020

Organiser's Description

The 58th Tom Scott Memorial Road Races will once again see hundreds from far and wide travel to Strathclyde Park to take part in one of two races, the 10 Mile Championship race and the Round the Loch 6k.

We are proud to once again play as hosts to the Scottish 10 Mile Championships and West District 10 Mile Championships in 2020!

Both races take place over a fast, flat route on the paths around the Strathclyde Park loch.

The 10 Mile race is notoriously fast, frequently recording some of the best 10 Mile times in the UK for the calendar year and featuring prominently in the end of year rankings.

The Round the Loch 6K is dedicated to those who prefer a slightly shorter distance - from serious club runners to those simply looking for their next challenge!
