This running route along the River Clyde was once busy with docks. Now, this sector keeps busy with events centers and science museums. The West End of Glasgow is most noteworthy where the Clyde intersects with the Kelvin, making for a stretch of beautiful waterfront park on the northern side of the river, all the way up to the University. You’ll especially enjoy running by the Riverside Museum on the Broomielaw, where you can check out the historic tall ships. From there, head north along the Kelvin, past Kelvingrove and through Kelvin Park before reaching the University. From here, you can double back or return via the train. There is a dedicated walking/running path much of the way.
Add-On: Glasgow Green is about 1 km east of Eglinton St.
- 5.8 km (3.6 miles) one-way, with longer options for loops or out and back.
