No expo. Numbers are posted, but can be picked up if you are late entering.
No pre runs.
Race day
The last race of the Babcock series and this one is on a Sunday morning instead of the Thursday evening that the others are on. Easy enough parking near the changing buildings where toilets are available and from there a short walk to the start line.
The serious runners like this event as it is a good circuit with nice surroundings. The route is basically split into three loops, the first and last in Glasgow green and the second taking you along the River Clyde before crossing the new Cuningar Bridge into the Clyde Gateway park at Shawfield.
If you are slow enough you get to see some of the good runners blazing past you on the way to the finish. Not sure if this is a good thing, but it is nice to see how well these people can run.
The final loop of the race seems to take a long time before you reach the finish line.
