3K on the Green

31/10/2016

On Friday the 28th of October Niall Campbell travelled to Glasgow Green to try and break the 10 minute barrier for 3k which has proved elusive for him.

Fortunately The female course record holder was running and proved an ideal "pace maker". He managed 9:55 which is a huge PB. 18 runners broke the 10 minute barrier out of a field of 99. It just goes to show what's possible when you don't charge off too quickly at the start....

3k on the Green is a flat, accurately measured road race taking place in Glasgow Green usually on the last Friday of each month. Runners meet at 12:10pm at the McLennan Arch to register (it helps to print out or email the entry form, which is on the web, beforehand) for a 12:30 start. The £2 entry fee goes to a worthy charity.

It's obviously a long way to go for a short race and the Friday lunchtime start won't suit all, but it's definitely worth a look if you are free on the last Friday of the month (always check it's not cancelled because of any big event e.g. The Great Scottish Run). Perhaps combine it with some shopping or catching up with friends!
