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. Several scored PBs and season bests, but it was our ladies who once again brought back the silverware. Louise Ross and Emer Campbell picked up National Silver and Bronze medals in the V40 category and Shona Donnelly won the V50 Bronze. 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

Bellas run the Drum, 2018

Bellas run the Drum, 2018

A great time was had this morning at Drumchapel parkun, for a bit of a social visit to Glasgow's "most undulating" parkrun. Over 20 Bellas ran, volunteered or supported the event. Thanks to the organisers for putting on a great event, and for delaying the start until a group of 7 of us running over from the southside arrived a touch late after going on a diversion around Blairdardie due to... navigational... challenges! It was fantastic catching up with everybody, and some familiar faces at the event. First Bellas home were Gerry Scullion…Read more
Our new membership fee structure

Our new membership fee structure

Back at our February AGM, our membership voted to adopt a new membership fee structure, and we're delighted we've now invited our existing members to renew their membership under the new structure.

We're still updating our website to reflect it everywhere, but we've replaced the old cash based system with a modern and, we think, excellent value for money setup that's easier for members, and us. We're also delighted that we can offer concessionary rates at…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.
