Organiser's Description

UK Running Series is proud to present the first event of the GREATER GLASGOW CHALLENGE, set to take place in Cleghorn Estate Gardens in Lanark, Scotland on Sunday 24 October 2021.

The GREATER GLASGOW CHALLENGE is a 7-race series covering the counties of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire.

The event is limited to 150 runners and is guaranteed to sell out quickly. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and there will be awards for the Top 3 finishers in Open, Masters and Junior races.

Cleghorn Estate Gardens is the perfect venue for this intimate event in the heart of Scotland. Two miles from the historic market town of Lanark, surrounded by working farmland, the 18th century gardens are beautiful whatever the season. Cleghorn Estate has been the home of the Lockharts since the beginning of the 15th century. The Eliott Lockhart family moved back to the estate in the 1970s and have worked tirelessly to reinvigorate the Old Garden to something close to its former glory, albeit without an army of gardeners. Ancient yew trees, towering beech, oak, lime and even a pair of giant redwoods, as well as rhodhodendrons and herbaceous perennials border the beautiful tiered lawns that provide a blank canvas on which the event in planned.

Our aid stations are vegetarian and vegan-friendly and we follow a strict COVID-19 protocol.
