September’s popular running routes covered distances from around 3 to 16 miles with some Southside routes claiming the top spots. The top five were:
- Paisley – Giffnock Half Marathon
- The Southside Six
- McAndrew Road Relay 1960s-80s
- Glasgow Green to Ibrox 10 Mile Loop
- Bells Bridge – Clyde Tunnel Loop
Bellahouston or Pollok Park make good starting points for this triangular route through the west of Southside. Mostly flat but with some hilly sections, you run through Cardonald towards Paisley and back in towards Giffnock. Thanks to Andy for the submission.
This iconic race was only published on the website with five days left of the month, yet it proved very popular and grabbed 2nd place. The 16 miles takes in Queen’s Park, Kings Park, Linn Park, Rouken Glen, Pollok Park and finishes back at Queen’s.
Another race that made it into the top five despite being a late entry. The McAndrews were organised by Victoria Park City of Glasgow A.C. This route from 1960s to 1980s was a 2.9 mile loop round Jordanhill, Anniesland and Scotstoun.
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.
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. It’s two months in a row of being in the top 5.
