Summer Vibes In The Southside
One of the West's most popular events will return in 2022 after a two year absence…
Bellahouston Harriers' flagship event, the Brian Goodwin 10K will take centre stage on Glasgow's southside on Friday 17 June and there are still places available. After two years absence, the club can't wait to celebrate the return of its popular race with runners from across the region.
Over the years, the Brian Goodwin 10K has become a 'must-race' event on the Scottish running circuit. The road race combines fast racing and a competitive field with a 'Friday night summertime' vibe that includes the promise of a free beer and burger at the finish line!
The race starts and finishes at Cartha Queen's Park RFC, and is staged over a two-loop course largely inside the scenic grounds of Pollok Park. The course route is officially certified and benefits from traffic management controls which ensure that all sections run outside the park will be on traffic-free roads.
This year's race incorporates the Renfrewshire 10K championships which includes: Bellahouston Harriers, Bellahouston Road Runners, Giffnock North AC, Greenock Glenpark Harriers, Inverclyde AC and Kilbarchan AAC.
Back in 2019 Olympian Callum Hawkins and former European junior champion Morag Millar were the race winners, when the top six finished in a time of 30:16 or under, 28 finishers broke 34 minutes, and the women’s course record was smashed by all three women who made the podium. Organisers are looking forward to seeing what the field of 2022 will achieve.
Bellahouston Harriers are well known for extending a warm welcome to all runners, families and supporters. This is an event that encourages everyone to stay and socialise at the clubhouse, where the barbecue and post-race prize-giving will be hosted.
Entries close on 6 June, but remember this event is often a sell-out, so if you fancy it - be quick!
