STAG welcomes you to Bto SOUL 7 based at John Paul Academy, Glasgow G23.

The school incorporates The John Paul Glasgow Club run by Glasgow Life & we have hired the Gymnasium as our base.

Parking, toilets, changing rooms are all available on site.

One Start within School Grounds. Junior Finish within 100m of school ; Senior Finish in School Grounds.
First used in Autumn 2016, the map has been extended to cover Gilshochill area to the south.

The Junior Courses visit The Kelvin Walkway( is a bit muddy in bits!), Caldercuilt Playing Fields & Maryhill Park. The boundary fence on the eastern side of Caldercuilt Playing Fields is mapped as a High Fence but there are several gaps in it so this is a crossable feature.
Some “Comfort Tapes” - in the form of STAG White Tape - shall be hung along the narrow path on the river bank where the undergrowth has been cut back to ease passage. The option of laying cardboard on the marsh parts of the walkway shall depend on weather conditions in the next few days.

Scale 1:4000, 5m contours by Terry. Updated August 2018. A3 Paper Size. Back to Back for Black & Brown Courses.

This is a SPRINT MAP where crossability is mapped NOT runnability. Longest courses shall use back to back maps.
Note that most of the boundary fence around JPA is about 4 feet high with an flat top & for those with flexibility & a degree of athleticism could be crossed. There are also 4 gates available for the more intelligent persons.

First Aid cover will be provided by St.Andrew’s Ambulance Corps.

The punching system will be SportIdent (SI) with SI Air enabled. If you do not have an SI card and need to hire this is free. If you wish to hire a SIAC (contactless) these are available for £2.50 for this event.
These should be pre-booked via Si Entries to guarantee availability. Lost SI dibbers will be charged at £30, lost SIACs £60.
