Interesting Scottish Running Spots
I previously blogged about attempting to run 50% of my MegaMeter challenge (100 10kms 2016) through official events. That means that the other 50% (50 runs) will need a bit of creative thinking so that I am not repetitively running around my neighbourhood streets. That would be dull.
A few initial thoughts:
- Glasgow Nike Runs – The community that leave from Buchannan st store Thursdays 6pm, Sunday 10am
- Other City Run
- Parks Runs – Glasgow Green, Pollok Park,Victoria, Tollcross etc
Then I got thinking about some of the more scenic spots that started to take my fancy, from Glasgow and beyond…
- Pollock Country Park
- Clyde River run
- Clyde Muirshiel Park
- Killpatrick hills
- Strathclyde National Pak
- Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh
- Linlithgow Peel, West Lothian
- Calanais Standing Stones, Lewis
- The little town of Killin
- Loch Ness
- Isle of Aaron
- Calton Hill, Edinburgh
- Isle of Skye
- Culzean Castle, Ayrshire
- Glasgow River Bridges Night Run
Let’s admit it, running is much better when we have a beautiful view and some clean fresh air to take in.
Do you know nice runs in any of these locations, or have any other beautiful spots to recommend, suitable for a 10km run? I would really appreciate your ideas. As always, post them below or twitter: @blackler_paul and I will blog them, and welcome any guest bloggers to share their own running experiences.
Stay Running, Stay Healthy!
