Suitable for all ages, you can jog, run, toddle or walk the 10K route. Pets are welcome to join in also.  Our new route is wheelchair and buggy friendly and will take in the sites both old and new so you can reminisce of your memories of Yorkhill whilst also celebrating our fantastic new home on the South Side of Glasgow.
