Entries have opened for the Tom Scott Road Races – which will host the Tru Wealth Scottish 10-Mile Championships.

It’s the first time in three years that this event has been planned and Sunday 3 April is the date to remember.

The Tom Scott Road Races start and finish from their traditional home of Strathclyde Park.

As in years past, the 10 mile race will count as both the West District 10 Mile Championships and the Scottish 10 Mile Championships. There is a limit of 500 runners.

Organisers say that the ‘extremely fast and flat’ route ‘is renowned as one of the fastest 10 milers in Scotland’, and is perfect for personal bests.

The event’s other race, the Round the Loch 6K, suits runners of all abilities aged 13+ looking for a shorter challenge. There is a limit of 100 runners for this race.

Although there have been a few changes to the race routes over the years, 2022 marks the 58th edition of the event.

The first race was held in 1962, to keep alive the memory of Tom Scott, a member of Motherwell YMCA Harriers. Scott, 29, was killed in a car accident the year before while travelling to take part in the Doncaster to Sheffield Marathon.
