Run 4 It (Giffnock, Glasgow)
131 Fenwick Road, Giffnock, G46 6JB Glasgow, United Kingdom
After such a successful Conic hill and Whangie Run, bringing loads of runners to the area for an amazing day out, We decided to start ticking off the classics! This time we have pushed the event back a few weeks to miss as many of the big local events as possible!
Scotland has some of the most beautiful mountains and breathtaking panoramas in the world. I bet you have always wanted to try hill running but not had the confidence to do it yourself. Don't worry, many people are on the same boat! How about a FREE Sunday stroll with the Run4It Team. The chosen route up and around Tinto hill is both fun, easy to follow and gives you a decent mix of terrain.A great introduction to the hills with a spectacular view!.. The route is 4.5 miles long.
The Route bellow;
Where to meet?
The car park for Tinto is just off the A73 south of Lanark, at Fullburn on the south side of the main road.
What to bring? (PLEASE READ)
-Warm layers, even if they stay in the bag
-A mobile phone for all that selfie goodness and emergencies.
-Extra warm layer in the car for after
-Water (its a short distance run but we will be out for a while)
-Something to snack on
Don't think you can run the whole way up?
Don't worry! nobody will be able to, this run is about fun, trying something new and enjoying the challenge. NOT about having to keep up with anyone. You do your thing!
The event is child (though please ensure this is not too much for them) and dog friendly. Please just ensure any pups are kept on a lead. as we will be passing through farmland.
