The annual Giffnock North Amateur Athletics Club Festival of Running continued this summer as more than 300 runners crossed the finish line at Rouken Glen Park for the Giffnock 10k.

Specsavers stores in and around Glasgow sponsored the popular 10k race. The stores involved included: Barrhead, Glasgow, Newlands, Paisley, East Kilbride Rutherglen, Glasgow Forge, Sauchiehall Street and Byres Rd.

Another successful year of partnership

Specsaveers not only sponsored but some staff members from the local opticians also competed in the race to show their support and sportsmanship. This year’s event marked another successful year of partnership between Specsavers and Giffnock North AAC.

David Quigley, Director of Specsavers Glasgow Forge said: ‘It was an honour to sponsor this event for the second consecutive year and it was great to see so many members of staff take part.

‘Giffnock North ACC is a community club which we are proud to support and we look forward to working with the team at next year’s ceremony.’
