The 2016 Pure Running Laganside 10k will take place over an exciting new officially measured route. Club Officials, alongside other stakeholders, considered the safety of participants, road users and the increase in participants for this years run and have designed a new run course with a similar profile to the popular old route.
The new course will give athletes the opportunity to run both inside Ormeau Park as well as on local roads and the Laganside Embankment as before, giving spectators lots of opportunity and space to support their family and friends.
The race starts and finishes near the Ormeau Road entrance to the Ormeau Park, on the path, between the bowling pavilion. The course will take runners through the park and out onto the Ravenhill Road. They will now take a left along the Albertbridge Road and turn left again along the Lagan towpath towards the Ormeau Bridge and continue along the Ormeau Embankment. Runners will then begin a second lap of the towpath and embankment before turning back into the park to finish. View the course map…

part of the Novosco 10k Grand Prix
The Novosco 10K Grand Prix is a not-for-profit 10km running race competition starting in March 2016 until November 2016. All 13 races will be accurately measured and certified as 10km before race day, have permits from AthleticsNI, agree to use chip timing services as provided by ChampionChip Ireland and displayed on the AthleticsNI fixture list.
The runners performances at each race will be compared to the Age Graded Tables. Age grading is a way to adjust the runners performance according to age and gender. The age-grading tables were developed by the World Association of Veteran Athletes, the world governing body for track and field, long distance running and race walking for veteran athletes. The tables were first published in 1989.
For example a 35 year old male running 31 minutes gets a score of 87.0% whilst a 25 year old female recording 33 minutes gets a percentage score of 91.9%.
Prizes of the Novosco 10K Grand Prix will be awarded to the top runners in the table overall regardless of age and gender. A team prize will be provided with a team score being calculated on placings for the club members in the overall ranking table in accordance with the usual method at a road race with the best 10 club members to count. There will only be one prize awarded per club.
