All being well we are hoping to hold the 7th Westies South Side Six Pub Run on Saturday 05 February 2022.

For those new to the club this event was started by Cameron Burt in 2015 with the blessing of the race organisers of the South Side Six Race which is now defunct, the race organisers were happy for us to use their route, we just added in six visits to pubs (and drinks within) on the way.

The race starts at the flagpole in Queens Park, I have attached the map showing the six checkpoints that need to be visited (all on trust) and you are allowed to go to which every pubs you want to on route. You can also start at any time you like with the aim of getting back to the flagpole as near to 4pm as you can. You do not have to choose the absolute optimum pubs in terms of location, instead focusing on finding a good ale or beer!

It will be entirely self-timed and you will be trusted to take in each checkpoint.  You can run on your own or with a wee team. You or your oartner or your team mates need to decide what time you want to start so as to finish as close to 4pm as you can.  Remember to consider your running time (the optimum course is about 16 miles), your drinking time in the pub (are you aiming for 5 minute per pint or a more sociable 15 minute visit), and if you are drinking (which is not mandatory) I imagine you won’t be running at PB pace!

Usually we arrange for bag drops at the pub we start and finish in but with restrictions this might not be possible. I’m looking at a possible alternative for a bag drop but it might be that you will need to turn up at the flagpole ready to run and the usual after run beers and food will need to be postponed for this year.

If you fancy taking part sign up below.

If anyone needs help to match-up with a group or pair to join to run with please state this on the sign up and I’ll do my best to put you in a similar group.

If anyone wants to take it particularly slowly I will be heading out early for a slow run/walk day.

Folk can message me when they start and finish to allow us to count everyone in and out.

Any questions give me a shout.
