14k run along the new M74 Motorway

I came across this earlier… M74 Bike ‘n’ Hike – A one off opportunity to see the new route of the M74 motorway

 A chance to bike, hike or run along the new part of the motorway which will join the M8 to the M74 in Glasgow.  The start of the route is at Shields Road which is less than a half a mile from our flat.  The event happens on Sunday the 22nd of May (the day of the Edinburgh Marathon) and entry is £5 each.

 It’s a 14k route (8.7 miles) and is an out and back route from Shields Road to the Fullarton roundabout.  And there’s also a short route which is 4k (2.5 miles) for anyone who just wants to do a short walk / cycle / run.

 Event Information Sheet

A good way for Glasgow City Council to recoup up to £100,000 and an opportunity for us to be one of the first people to run / walk / cycle on a new road.  Looking forward to it. 😀
