59th Tom Scott Memorial Road Races
02 Apr 2023
The 59th 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.
Both races take place over the paths around the Strathclyde Park loch. Owing to some course changes for this year, there are a few new undulations but the majority of the route remains flat.
The 10 Mile race has been notorious for fast times in recent years, 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 is a run between 6 and 7 kilometers dedicated to those who prefer a slightly shorter distance - from serious club runners to those simply looking for their next challenge!
