Great! The Olympians always organise excellent races. (Hopefully I will manage 5K by the time Broadwood comes round.) Could you give an idea of the course?

I understand that it's primarily the old Luddon-Strathkelvin half marathon route from the 80's. Rough route is Kirkie, Milton of Campsie, Torrance, Bishopbriggs and back to Kirkie.

Any folks looking for another nice half after all those great runs in Glasgow yesterday.

Based on that route it should be PB territory gentle uphill 1st half, so gentle downhill 2nd half, nice for a negative split :) All in the shadow of the lovely Campsie hills.

There's a bit about Neil McCover in the entry form too.

Should be a good run.

worth noting though that they have placed a time limit - so do check that you are able to do the race within the 2.5 limit.

great to have a half just round the corner - though might not get to it this year.

Well done everyone who ran today, miserable cold start, could only get better and thankfully it did!
