Race organisers Renfrewshire Council are urging runners to sign up now for this year’s Paisley 10k Road Race and Fun Run.

The event, taking place in the town centre on Sunday 30 August, offers ‘early bird’ discounts on race registration until Saturday 6 June. Discounts are available for club runners, adults, children and those who choose to compete as a team.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Mark Macmillan said: “Last year, there were over 1,900 competitors in the road race with another 900 in the fun run, so this race just keeps getting bigger and better.

“The Road Race is popular with serious runners and first-time participants because it’s a flat, fast loop of the west of the town and the town centre. It’s also one of the more scenic routes for this type of race, taking in many of Paisley town centre’s architectural gems. The Fun Run is a 3km dash around the town centre, and even if you don’t fancy running, it’s perfect for a stroll round with family.”

“If you can, sign up now, take advantage of the discounts available and then start training so that you get the most of taking part in this year’s race.”

The popular event, sponsored for the fifth year by Hillington Park, will take place on Sunday 30 August.

Runners can sign up online at www.paisley10k.com or pick up a race application form at their local sports centre or library.

Every competitor receives a medal and trophies are awarded to the winner of each age category in the 10k.
