13 Good Things about the Stirling 10k

13 Good Things about the Stirling 10k

Danny just put together a list of '13 Good Things about the Stirling 10K'. We needed to share, so you all know what they are.... It’s Flat It’s true to its word. My Garmin says the elevation gain is 43 metres. That means those of you who live in a house probably climb something like this going to bed. Those who live in a flat, I suppose it depends what floor you live on, but you get my point. It’s not Sherbrooke hills Van with real coffee machine Parked right near the start.…Read more
Bella ladies win Scottish medals again!

Bella ladies win Scottish medals again!

Twenty Bellas raced this morning in windy and surprisingly humid conditions at the Stirling 10k which also doubled up as the Scottish 10k Champs.

Well done ladies! 🥈🥉🥉 Results available here, and our thanks to Central AC for hosting a superb event! Photos courtesy of Graeme McNay and Robert Macleod.Read more

President’s Cup 2018

President’s Cup 2018

66 Bellas competed in another hotly contested President’s Cup on Wednesday 20 June.  The 5K handicap race around Bellahouston Park was won by Julia McDonald for the women and Andrew Haddow for the men. Each runner sets off after a time handicap based on their recent race performance.  So every club member has a good chance of winning and the finish is always exciting.  More than three quarters of runners crossed the finish line within one minute of each other.  Even so the team of volunteers at the finish funnel coped brilliantly.

Babcock 10k series concludes; Edinburgh Marathon Festival

A sunny, if slightly windy day in Glasgow today saw the conclusion of the Babcock 10k series at the expertly organised Shettleston 10k on Glasgow Green.

Full results here, and the team results are on the Scottish Athletics report. Well done Ladies,…Read more

The club has had a busy few days for club championship races, with the Dumbarton 10k and the rearranged Down by the River 10k both featuring as medium distance races this week.

Gerry Scullion continued his fine running form with a superb 37:00 as 3rd V50 Male. Cambuslang 10k took…Read more
Bella 3K Track Race

Bella 3K Track Race

The Club held its inaugural 3K track race on 18 April, the sunniest and warmest evening of the year so far. No fewer than 53 club runners competed in three heats, cheered on by fellow club members, and supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers who worked hard to time each runner individually. It was a great chance for everyone to practise racing on the track in a friendly environment, and a nice excuse to enjoy some food and drink together after the running was over. We hope that this sort of racing…Read more
Race Report: 2018 Tom Scott 10 mile road race

Race Report: 2018 Tom Scott 10 mile road race

Robert Macleod just sent in this race report from yesterday's Tom Scott 10 mile road race: If you had asked me 5 or 10 years ago would I take up running in the years to come I would have just laughed at you, the most running I ever done was running from people wanting to batter me in school, I officially ran my first race in June 2016 doing the men's 10k in my Adidas sambas and the reason that was I didn't intend to continue running after that, I struggled with that…Read more
