UNPRECEDENTED demand has prompted the organisers of one of the most popular and important fitness events in Scotland to hold special late registration sessions.

Online entries can no longer be accepted for the Men’s 10k – which takes place in Glasgow this Sunday, June 16 – but dads, sons, brothers, uncles, friends and workmates can still sign up in person.

You can also still register boys and girls for the Rascal Run – a 1km fun run which will take place before the main event for youngsters aged up to 14.

Special late-entry sessions will be held this Friday, June 14 (6pm-8pm) and Saturday, June 15 (10am– 3pm) at the portacabin in the Race Village in Bellahouston Park.

The cost is £25 for men and £5 for each child entering the Rascal Run. Please take cash or a cheque as there are no card-processing facilities.

More than 3,000 men have stepped forward for the family-friendly event, being held on Father’s Day, which aims to encourage and inspire men of all ages and fitness levels to go the distance and take new strides towards health and wellbeing.

The Men’s Health Forum Scotland 10k for Men is going to be one of THE events of the year and an inspirational experience for everyone taking part.

A spokesperson for the Men’s 10k said: “Please help us make this year’s event the biggest ever by signing up – and challenging all your workmates, family and friends to do the same!

“You can really feel the excitement building as we get closer to Sunday. If you’re thinking of getting involved, don’t delay. The worst feeling in the world would be sitting at home, wishing you were taking part. There’s still time.

“We hope a huge turn-out of family and friends will be at Bellahouston Park on Sunday to support their loved ones taking on the Men’s 10k challenge.

“There’s going to be a feast of entertainment, stalls and more. Come along and enjoy the camaraderie and support of a genuinely feelgood event.

“It’s going to be a great day for all the family – full of excitement, fun, friendship and inspirational achievement.”
