2018 Glasgow running routes

The site has been on the go since April 2018 and has proved popular among runners. Thanks for your follows and shares and if you haven’t joined us on Strava, Twitter or Facebook, jump in. I’ve been a bit lazy on uploading new routes over the past couple of months, why not give the site a helping hand and submit yours and share your Glasgow running routes with other runners.

Our five most popular running routes of 2018 have been:

  1. The Southside Six
  2. Glasgow Green to Ibrox 10 Mile Loop
  3. Kelvingrove Park to Clydebank Half-Marathon Loop
  4. Bell’s Bridge – Clyde Tunnel loop
  5. Old Cathcart Cemetery – Cathkin Braes Loop

This iconic race was only published on the website in September and it proved very popular. The 16 miles takes in Queen’s Park, Kings Park, Linn Park, Rouken Glen, Pollok Park and finishes back at Queen’s. View route

This 10 miler was based on a route by our Strava follower, Blair. Meet at The Green and run along the Clyde, crossing over towards Rutherglen then Bellahouston Park and back to the Clyde via Ibrox Stadium. View route

Another user submitted route, this time by David Carr. This is a nice relaxing long run. It’s perfect for getting away from traffic, taking in the Kelvin Walkway, Forth and Clyde Canal and cycle path back to Glasgow. If you’re training for a half marathon and want to get used to the distance it’s a great route for testing yourself. View route.

A roughly 10k loop that starts at Bell’s Bridge near the Hydro and runs out to Govan to experience the pleasure of running through the Clyde Tunnel. The route was consistently popular since it was uploaded. View route

Another user submitted route from Michael at Giffnock NAAC. Enjoy a 16 mile workout in this run which has a bit of everything. It will work your lungs, legs and everything in between as you run trails, farm roads, jump some felled trees and do a bit of deer spotting. View route
