Popular Running Routes – August 2018

August’s popular running routes were a good mix of trails, races and road runs. The top five were:

  1. Rouken Glen 5k
  2. Mugdock to Glengoyne Distillery
  3. Dunky Wright 5k
  4. Bell’s Bridge to Clyde Tunnel Loop
  5. Old Cathcart Cemetery to Cathkin Braes Loop

Rouken Glen 5k

Rouken Glen Park is in the south west of Glasgow and features a boating pond, kids play area, skate park, garden centre, nature trails and plenty of green space for others to enjoy whilst you squeeze in a run. This 5k route takes you past the David Lloyd fitness centre, up and down some trails, past the odd waterfall and through the park.

Mugdock to Glengoyne Distillery

Get out into the wild and enjoy this trail run with fantastic views over the Campsies via Glengoyne Distillery and the West Highland Way. This route is almost 15 miles long, could be described as undulating and starts and finishes in Mugdock Country Park.

Dunky Wright 5k

The Dunky Wright Memorial Road Race is organised by the Clydesdale Harriers. It was last run in 2016 and is a fast, flat 5k starting at the Clydebank Business Centre and finishes on the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Bell's Bridge to Clyde Tunnel Loop

This is a 10k(ish) route from the Bell’s Bridge through Govan to the surreal experience of running under the Clyde via the Northbound tunnel. You return via South Street, Riverside Museum and Science Centre

Old Cathcart Cemetery to Cathkin Braes Loop

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
