South By Five

Organiser's Description

The acclaimed South By Five race series returns to Glasgow for the 22/23 winter season.

Exploring Glasgow's southside parks which help lend their beauty to the 'dear green place', the series visits six parks and completes a 5k race in each of the parks over a 10-12 week period. We explore and discover parts of these parks which you may not previously have visited, taking in the wee trails, undulations and hidden glades.

Fresh for this year, the series is free to enter. Times are tough for most just now, and running and racing should not be the reserve of the rich. Helping folk navigate the cost of living crisis, we decided to put this series on for free.

Each race will be available to enter seperately. This is a change to previous when you could enter the full series in one go. We noticed in the past that the series would sell out but not all entrants would take part in the full series. This may have been due to a change in circumstances since sign up, or it may have been the ease and convenience of signing up to six races with one entry. The result was some people who wished to enter missed out as the races were 'full'. We envisage this being more of an issue when it is free to enter

We hope that by making each race an individual entry, people are more likely to sign up to the events which they are most likely to make.

Participants who sign up to 5 or 6 races will be deemed 'series entrants' and marked as such on the results. Only those who complete 5 of the 6 races will be considered series finishers!
