There is plenty of parking available in the various car parks within Bellahouston Park. On street parking is also available in the surrounding streets. If you could avoid parking directly in front of the shops on Mosspark Drive this would be helpful.

The nearest subway is Ibrox. Trains travel from Central Station to Dumbreck Railway Station, which is a 5-minute walk from the park. Please use Traveline Scotland to determine which is the best public transport option for you.
The 5K and 10K route is entirely on tarmac paths within the park, and also makes use of some pavement adjacent to the park. Course maps are at the bottom of the page. Water will be available at the end of the races, and there will be one water stop on the 10K route shortly after 5K.
