28th January 2022 – 3k on the Green return

I plan to resume 3k on the Green, live, at Glasgow Green on Friday 28th January, 12.30pm. Format will be as before but I may be looking for a few volunteers to help at the event registration and timekeeping. Anyway, a date for the diary for now.

Virtual 3k – Feb 2021

Thanks to everyone who took part in the first Virtual “3k on the Green”.  Hope you all enjoyed it and has set a 3k benchmark for this year and pushed you into racing mode for the first time in a while – it did for me. I guess it’s really just a Virtual 3k since […]

November 2018 – 3k on the Green

It was a miserable day and our expectations were for a relatively low sub 100 turnout.

So hopefully more good things to come from this race through 2018. The event was also supported by Run 4 It with discount vouchers provided […]

November 3k on the Green

For the first time in my memory we had miserable weather for the 3k on the Green. I’d been following the weather forecast for much of this week and it proved to be pretty accurate, cold and wet from registration through to the finish. So I was truly surprised to see so many at registration, […]

July Summary

I’d received quite a few new entries in the days running up to July’s 3k on the Green so after breaking our record of 88 runners in June I was expecting that to be broken again with around 100 entrants. The swarm of 139 runners that descended on Glasgow Green as we approached 12.30 was […]


3k on the Green has been on the go for several years. I took on its organisation in September 2011. By April 2012, when this site launched over 100 people have taken part in at least one race. It’s a good opportunity for a short, sharp testing run ahead of the weekend. I suspect most […]
