Having hosted the Virtual Migo Mile during the lockdown years, this is our first time hosting the “in-person” Migo Mile as Acorn Trails (previous editions were hosted by The Run Bible) Back to basics, and trying to get the event back into people’s thoughts and calendars, we had just 20 runners sign up for this free […]

South By Five – Bellahouston Park

South By Five – Bellahouston Park

So Bella By Five came around. The fifth of our six race South By Five series. The Bellahouston Park course is a strange one for us, in that it is 100% tarmac. A wee hangover for when the series was designed with Alex at his previous role with The Run Bible. However we loved the route, and know you guys do too, so we kept it. And what it lacks in mud, it makes up in […]

Sx5 Pollok Park race report

Pollok Park – everyone has run in Pollok Park. “I know the park well”, “I run Pollok parkrun every week”, “I run in Pollok all the time” Then Acorn Trails arrives and takes you to parts of the park you didn’t know existed. Just like the Pollok Park Trail Race earlier this year, we promised mud. Pollok Park delivered. I keep saying it, race after race, but this one is my favourite! It can’t be […]

Rx5 – Rouken Glen race report

Rx5 race report With a good autumnal downpour lashing the route during Saturday’s litter pick, and Storm Barra brewing out in the Atlantic, we once again we’re looked upon kindly by the weather goods. Blue skies and sun shone down on a bitterly cold Sunday morning. Saturday’s mud, frozen to an underfoot crunch. Michelle kept the pre race brief short and sweet, as runners wrapped their arms around themselves to keep warm. If warm was […]

Sx5 – Linn Park race report

Lx5 race report South By Five in its second running started its second race. Linn Park was looking fantastic. Bright blue skies, glorious sunshine and a wee touch of ground frost, which would clear in time for the race start. It kept the race team chilled from the early setup. Returning runners were reissued their bibs from the previous event, now proudly sporting the red dot symbolising their completion of race 1 in Kings Park. […]
