Map of Glasgow - Tollcross Park Map

STAG 619 - Autumn 3 - Wed 29th Aug 2018 - Tollcross Park, Results

Pleasant evening in a Sunny Tollcross Park.


I am pleased with the outcome of this first attempt at an evening sprint & realise courses could have been a bit longer.

My thanks to John, Blair, Lorna, Thomas, Peter, Simon, Peter, Karen, Colin & Jo for their support & assistance this evening.


As the NEW Tollcross Park is drawn to Sprint specifications it makes sense to plan such courses.


So the plan is to plan 3 courses each between 1.2k > 1.5k in length. Short Course you complete Course 1 ; Medium Course - Courses 1 & 2 & Long Course Courses 1, 2 & 3. You need to take a break & download between courses.

The question everyone is asking is will Andy Paterson actually make an appearance.
