STAG Dark Park 5 - Wed 3rd Jan’18 - Bellahouston Park - No.598.

Many Thanks to everyone for their support this evening but particularly to Gerry who, despite being told to stay at home was ever present to take charge of Registration & Results.

Well done to young Anna Talbot who did visit all the controls but this event had defined courses as shown at the top of the map. If it had been a SCORE TYPE (visit in any order) she would have scored maximum points. The computer system only shows when controls were visited in the correct sequence.

3 options - Short, Medium & Long - approximately 2k / Technically Easy ; 3.5k > 4k / Technically Medium ; 5k+ Technically as difficult as area allows.

Map of Glasgow - Bellahouston Park MapTerrain description

Permanent course now repaired & map updated. Re-launched in 2017.

The 1985 GPS event was followed 4 years later by the 1st Glasgow Parks Summer Series and more recently for thematic and night events.

16 controls make up the permanent course which will take about 60 minutes to walk round. Undergrowth should not be a big issue in the Summer months.

Only the Palace of Art Building remains.
In March 1978, the IAAF World Cross Country Championships was held and in 1982.
The 1982 visit of Pope John Paul II was commemorated with a Mass in the park.
Bellahouston Sports Complex and the Glasgow Ski Centre are located in the Park.
The House for an Art Lover was opened in 1996 to celebrate the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
