Specsavers stores in and around Glasgow sponsored the Giffnock 10k this summer for the second consecutive year.

More than 300 runners crossed the finish line at Rouken Glen Park as participants took part in the annual Giffnock North Amateur Athletics Club Festival of Running. Many of the competitors also attended an evening ceremony to celebrate their success later in the day.

Another successful year

The 2015 contest marked another successful year of partnership between Specsavers and Giffnock North AAC. Along with sponsoring the event, staff members from the local opticians also competed in the 10k race to show their support and great sportsmanship.

The stores involved included: Barrhead, Glasgow, Newlands, Paisley, East Kilbride Rutherglen, Glasgow Forge, Sauchiehall Street and Byres Rd.

Great community club

David Quigley, Director of Specsavers Newlands 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.’
