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 […]

South By Five Running is often billed as a free sport. Ask runners, and they’ll tell you the cost of trainers, tshirts, jackets, belts, gloves, waterproofs, races soon add up! South By Five this year was aimed to help with the rising costs. And we visited Kings Park for the first event. Entrants were asked to give only what they could afford to a variety of, let’s call them ‘ethical’ options. Tree planting in a […]

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

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 July

Migo Mile For July

A Horrible Wee Race Another month, another Migo Mile – and a new tag line! It is well know that the 3K On The Green is known as “The best wee race in Scotland”. After today’s event, we’ve been dubbed “A horrible wee race”!! There was the addendum “But I loved it”. We’ll definitely take that – “A Horrible Wee Race That You’ll Love” – thanks Barry 🙂 For such a wee race we had […]

Rouken Glen Trail Race The morning started with a light shower. My rain dance had worked. We were going to get some mud!!! Sadly it past quickly, and the end result was a plague of flies, and a hot humid start line. With a blast on the horn, runners streamed down the hill for a fast frantic start. Taking in the hidden pockets of the park, the “unused bit” and down into the Glen itself, […]

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 […]

Kx5 race report

We’re back. South By Five returned to Kings Park after a covid enforced absence. The water works in the park are gone. This allowed us to redesign the route to take in the full park, and show off areas folk hadn’t seen before. Indeed many folk commented they had never before run in Kings Park at all. They were in for a treat. Despite the full park being open, it is still relatively small compared […]

Dunky 2021 Race Report and Results

The Duncan Macfarlane Race, the Dunky, named after Michelle’s grandfather, was an event that should have taken place in January to mark what would have been his 100th birthday. It would have been Acorn Trails first event. As the pandemic rolled on into its second calendar year, it quickly became apparent our plans would need to change. The 100th birthday Dunky went virtual and raised nearly £500 for The Woodland Trust. The “Real” Dunky The […]
