Here is the Clyde Stride 40 mile route I will be running on the 16th July:
It follows the course of the River Clyde from the centre of Glasgow through Hamilton, Strathclyde Park and Lanark. It passes the attractions of Bothwell Castle and woods, the David Livingstone Centre, Strathclyde Country Park, the Palace Grounds and Mausoleum at Hamilton, and the Barons Haugh Nature Reserve to end at the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage village of New Lanark.
Here’s a garmin route for it (not mine might I add!)
Here is the elevation chart for it.
This is how the route will be split:
|Check Points||Leg length||Location||Terrain|
|Start||Partick Railway Station||10 miles||55:52:12N 4:18:33W||Flat/Town|
|CP1||Cambuslang Bridge||8 miles||55:49:24N 4:10:13W||Flattish/Rural|
|CP2||Strathclyde Park||10 miles||55:48:10N 4:03:02W||Undulating/Rural|
|CP3||Mauldslie Bridge||12 miles||55:43:51N 3:54:22W||Undulating+ /Rural|
Here are some links to some maps of the route and some good maps of the route can be found here:
An intro brochure gives the map above with more information on it.
Then there are 5 brochures which show the route bit by bit:
Clyde Walkway 4
Clyde Walkway 5
I’ve cycled some of the route, to Rutherglen… however I plan to run most of the sections of the route during my long run training and will use the maps above to figure out where best to park or get the train from and to. I think I’ll do the first part of the route – out about 10 miles then back on Saturday (20 in total).
