Sx5 Linn Park race report and results

Lx5 Seventy-seven of you returned to charge down the starting hill in Linn Park. Joined by another thirty four in their first series event of 2022, leaving this year’s South By Five the most popular yet. A brief shower as the marshals were deployed was the last of the rain, which had poured in the wee hours. This shower had registered runners huddling under the trees, eagerly awaiting the starting hooter. Mud and puddles were […]

Dunky 22 race report and results

The Show Must Go On That the Dunky would go ahead wasn’t in question (unlike some events in a different council area!). What state we would be in on the day of the race was dubious. With the Dunky falling on the last day of the school holiday, it was always going to be tough to squeeze in a family holiday, and the race in the same week. We got home at 3am, and registration […]

Linn Park Centenary Trail Race report and results

It is a great feeling hosting a race for the second time. Linn Park Centenary Trail Race was our first real life race (i.e. non virtual event). For that reason alone it’s always going to be an important one for us. Of course the fantastic route, the hills and the mud also mean its always going to be a feature of our calendar. The feedback we had from 2021 meant we could not leave this […]

Magnificent 7

Magnificent 7

Migo Mile for August It was a small turn out for the August Migo Mile. A consequence of a busy few days of racing in the local area: Canal Canter from Springburn Harriers on Thursday, then 3K on The Green and the Bellahouston 10k on Friday. Saturday brought the OUT-Run in Glasgow’s West End, and the awesome Tom Robb Memorial Trail Race in the Carron Valley. Magnificent 7 The small field led to runners experiencing […]

Migo Mile for June

Migo Mile for June

A Good Sunday Morning It is fantastic to be back. Back putting races on, and back with Migo Mile. 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 […]

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. […]
