GLASGOW UNIVERSITY 5

he Glasgow University 5 Mile Road Race is a long-running and popular race on the outskirts of the City of Glasgow. The race starts and finishes in Garscube Sports Complex, following a 2 lap course around quiet roads and paths. A mix of fast flat sections with the odd undulation thrown in makes this a testing and popular course.

 

The race was first held in 1963 over an approximate 4.8 mile course. In 1999 a new 5 mile course was introduced. 

 

Glen Stewart has recorded 12 wins in the race and Nat Muir 9. For a fuller narrative, see Scottish Distance Running History.
