Monday 24th May 2010 STAG Summer Series 1 Tollcross Park

Summer Series of Events kicks off again @ Tollcross Park with a relatively simple Cross-Country Course of 4.6k 100m climb but with a wee twist ....

Ah the twist ,16 controls with the first starter going forwards ie 1 > 16 ; the second backwards - no Alastair you don’t have to run backwards just visit the controls 16 > 1.

Happy news from event on Monday 17th is that Tobi’s eyesight isn’t wonderful & Unit 57 was still secured to the fence but the red & white tape had been removed.

Thanks to Bernie, Claire, Simon & Tobi for bringing in controls after the event.

Map of Tollcross Park MapTerrain description

New Permanent Course installed & map updated Nov 2016 for relaunch in 2017.

Tollcross Park was the first Glasgow Park mapped by STAG back in 1982 and played a vital part in the early development of the Club.

Previous attempts to establish a permanent course in 1986 and 1988 were unsuccessful but with the regeneration of the Park underway we are again hopefully that the 2016 Course shall be a success.
