With Strathclyde Park hosting some events in the 2014 Commonwealth Games impending "WORKS"
within the park (March - June) has resulted in the 2014 Tom Scott Road Race having to find a new venue.
The Tom Scott committee have therefore decided to host the 2014 race from the John Cumming Stadium in Carluke.
The race will be run on the open roads around Carluke & as soon as the precise course had been measured details
will be provided on the web-site.
Runners of all abilities are therefore invited to come along to the John Cummings
Stadium in CARLUKE on Sunday 13th April 2014 to take part in one of the Tom Scott Road Race events. The
main race of the day - 52nd Tom Scott 10M Memorial Road Race - is run to perpetuate the memory to a
very fine runner from Law Village who was unfortunately killed in a motoring accident whilst on his way to take part in an
athletic event in England.
The above event is one of
the major 10M Road Races in Scotland and attractes entries from all parts of the country. The popularity of the race has been
further enhanced by it being included as the first event in the Scottih Athletic Road Race Series. The
Scottish Veteran Harriers & the West District Road Racing Commission have also decided to hold
their closed 10 Mile Championship events within the race therby ensuring a large number of competitors.
For those runners who feel that a 10 mile championship event is not for them they will
be glad to know that shorter race (approx 7K) will be incorporated within the main event.To encourage younger runners to compete
it has been decided that prizes will be awarded to first male & female competitors who are under 20 & 17 years of
age on race day.
