Glasgow race set for Father’s Day

February 5, 2019 by  

A popular annual race is to take place in Glasgow later in the year and this time, it is set to double as a way of raising money for charities that support men with health issues.

The Men’s 10k was originally launched 15 years ago and since then it has become a regular fixture among active types on the west coast. It offers participants a chance to keep in shape or get fit, as well as to support charities. This type of event is often advertised using places that supply flyer printing.

The starting point for the run will be the Riverside Transport Museum and the route will take the runners past numerous Glasgow landmarks, including Armadillo, the SSE Hydro and the Science Centre. The second 5k will see competitors head to Glasgow Green, across the Clyde and back towards George Square.

Cancer Research UK is the official charity partner, but there are also lots of other charities affiliated with the run. The focus this year is on making people more aware of health issues that affect men, with organiser Mike Christoforou telling Glasgow Live:

“We’re delighted that the Men’s 10k continues to help thousands of guys on their journey to becoming a fitter, healthier and happier person.”

The run is due to start at 10am on 16th June.
