The run winds around the expansive parkland and takes advantage of the asphalt path throughout. The route climbs in the middle with the runner rewarded with views over Glasgow. At other times the course passes by the mixed parkland and ornamental gardens that have been a highlight of Glasgow’s Premier Public Park for over 100 years.
The start/finish area is located with the cycle track of Bellahouston Park which is located on the south/west side of the Park. The start/finish area will be indicated by a large inflatable archway. Please note that the route may be subject to change.
This extensive park covers an area of 71 hectares (180 acres). It has many features and facilities to tempt visitors and local residents to its grounds. It boasts formal gardens and open parkland in which to relax and take in views over the city and beyond.
