Sign up and grab a free gym pass

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS - Shirley Bar­tynek

As the count­down con­tin­ues to the town’s first 10k event, we can an­nounce this week that every­one who signs up to the run will re­ceive a free gym pass for a day.

The town’s Xer­cise4­less, in the New Cross Cen­tre, have vowed to of­fer all those who sign up for the Hamilten 10K a pass for their fa­cil­ity.

And the gym’s sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Amanda Jane Clark said:“this is a great sport­ing event for the town, and we are de­lighted to be able to of­fer this as an in­cen­tive to those who sign up ahead of the big run this Septem­ber.

“It’s a ter­rific idea to get peo­ple into the cen­tre.”

Since the Ad­ver­tiser of­fi­cially launched the ma­jor sport­ing event, many of you have been quick to back it.

You can sign up for the Septem­ber run at en­trycen­tral.com – but we want to get as many feet on the street as pos­si­ble for the unique Hamilten event.

Your Ad­ver­tiser has teamed up with Hamil­ton Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict (BID) to bring you the run that will take in some of the town’s most fa­mous land­marks.

Whether you walk, run or sim­ply come to cheer on those tak­ing part, we would be de­lighted to see you on Satur­day, Septem­ber 22.

And there will also be plenty of fun for the fam­ily while the run­ners are in ac­tion.

The large-scale event for 1500 run­ners will be­gin in the town’s Cas­tle Street and take a route that goes past the Low Parks Museum, en­ter­ing the Palace Grounds, past the Davie Cooper Me­mo­rial, then through the tun­nel to­wards Strath­clyde Park.

Run­ners will then head north along the water­side be­fore loop­ing back on them­selves at the far end of the loch and fin­ish­ing back in Cas­tle Street.

The event is be­ing sup­ported by lo­cal busi­nesses, Po­lice Scot­land, South La­nark­shire Leisure and Cul­ture and South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

There will also be prizes awarded to the win­ners of each cat­e­gory: 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and fe­male over­all; 1st, 2nd and 3rd se­nior male and fe­male; 1st, 2nd and 3rd Vet 40 male and fe­male; and 1st, 2nd, 3rd Vet 50 male and fe­male.

The race be­gins at 9.30am and there will be a stage area with mu­sic to en­ter­tain spec­ta­tors un­til the run­ners re­turn.
