Running In The West Of Scotland

When you are talking about running in the West Of Scotland, the obvious place to start is Glasgow with its long history of producing top class running clubs such as Maryhill Harriers, Springburn Harriers, and Shettleston Harriers. Beyond the city boundaries there is an abundance of trail routes and a burgeoning running scene where clubs such as Kirkintilloch Olympians and Campbeltown Running Club are important parts of their local communities. 

Further afield, the general area has long been a hotbed of running talent, with well-established clubs such as Kilbarchan AAC, Ronhill Cambuslang Harriers and Ayr Seaforth producing a string of stars over the years. But far from being the exclusive domain of elite runners, the area is home to an inclusive running scene with the likes of Troon Tortoises and Strathaven Striders providing a welcoming environment for runners of all abilities.

As the 'Dear Green Place' Glasgow has more public parks than any other city in Europe and is therefore an ideal place to go running. But besides these many green spaces, the area surrounding Scotland's largest city is one of varying vistas - from rolling hills to lochside views to stunning coastal routes, this area has the lot covered!

Whether you're an aspiring star of the track and field or simply enjoy going for a jog, there's something for everyone in the running empire that is the west of Scotland! Read on to find out why when it comes to running, west is best!
