Would you take part in a Ruchill Parkrun?


There is some local interest in starting a Parkrun in Ruchill Park. Parkruns take place every Saturday morning at 9:30am across the UK, currently there are six in Glasgow.  The course will be 5k in length and will be full contained within the boundaries of Ruchill park.

This is a great way to get fit, meet new people and support the local community.  Each Park Run event is free, but prior on-line registration is required.

In order to get the Ruchill Parkrun set up, we need at least 12 volunteers to help out in roles like track marshals and scanning runners’ barcodes.  Volunteers don’t have to make a commitment to be there every week or do the same job every time.  Anyone can be a volunteer, although volunteers under 11 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Are you up for the challenge of running or volunteering in a Ruchill Parkrun, then email Alistair at
