Race Listing

Womens 10kRecords will be both played and broken at this weekend's LP Run. The event involves running as many Revolutions Per Minute (laps) of a track as you can during 33 and a third minutes, listening to music as you do so. A more traditional style of music will be played at the Bute Highland Games 10K. Less musical, but no less physical, the DB12Run 10K will be held in Strathclyde Country Park. 

You can find lots of events and results on our race listings page and organisers can add their race details to our event listings by signing up here.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
