The Jimmy Irvine Bella 10k is organised by the Bellahouston Road Runners. This popular race usually sells out despite the risk of running in the miserable November rain. The route has changed over the past couple of years and the 2018 race is mostly within Bellahouston Park, with one section on the pavement along Mosspark Boulevard.
You start with a short downhill along the tree lined paths before heading up towards the flagpole and House for an Art Lover. Then it’s a quick downhill past the sculpture park and a sharp left turn towards the leisure centre. There’s a few small up and downs through the park and out to Mosspark Boulevard to run along the inner pavement. When you re-enter the park there’s a bit of a hill as you run towards the Dumbreck Road exit then cut back to the start line. You complete two and a half laps of this circuit and on the final sprint take the path nearest the football pitches.
The hills aren’t too bad, however you’ll definitely be feeling it when doing them twice and the twisty corners will keep you on your toes. Given the time of year the race takes place, be careful on the slippy leaves.
Hope to #seeyouatthejimmy.
