Thank you for entering the Brian Goodwin 10k. We look forward to seeing you on Friday 16th June, 2017. The race starts at 7.30pm.

We hope the following information will be useful to you on race day.

Registration

Registration will be located at Cartha Rugby Club, 92 Dumbreck Road, Glasgow, G41 4SN. You can collect your race number (incorporating your race chip) from 5.30 until 7, thirty minutes before the race starts. There are limited toilet and changing facilities at Cartha, and a space for bags to be left, although this is at the owner's risk.

We request that all participants attend a safety briefing at 7.25, outside the rugby club. Following this, participants will follow a piper to the start of the race.

At registration, you'll be given a voucher for a beer and burger after the race. We can't provide replacements, so please don't lose it!

Getting to the race

If you're travelling by car, exit the M77 at Junction 1, and turn South onto Dumbreck Road, before taking a right hand turn into Pollok park. Cartha is then the first turn on the left. Please note parking in the grounds of Cartha is likely to be limited, and you will not be able to remove your car until after the race is complete. You may also wish to consider parking in the areas around St. Andrew's Drive, or Mosspark Boulevard.
