Renfrewshire Leisure's Virtual 5k Summer Series

Introducing Renfrewshire Leisure’s Virtual 5k Summer Series!


Working in partnership with charity Erskine & Kilbarchan AAC, we are challenging you to run a 5k in the fastest time that you can.

The Virtual Summer Series consists of 3 individual weeks, starting on 27th July 2020, where you have the full week to run 5k and then submit your best time. You can run the distance in any way that suits you so this can be an outdoor run or run on a treadmill.

This event is free of charge, where donations to our partner charity Erskine is encouraged.

As Scotland’s foremost provider of care for veterans and their spouses, Erskine provides unrivalled nursing, residential, respite and dementia care in four homes throughout Scotland.  

Erskine’s strength lies in the very special blend of dedicated care, compassion and understanding they offer to residents and their families.  Erskine support nearly 1,000 Veterans each year; their homes provide Veterans with the companionship of like-minded people.  Erskine not only care for their Veterans – they care about them. 


How to register

You can register for all three of the weeks, or just one or two of them – it is completely up to you. Or if you only register for the first week then decide you want to try and beat your time the following week, then you can go on and register any time.

Sign up now:

Week 2               3rd August – 9th August

Week 3               10th August – 16th August

Registration will be open all throughout each week. Once you register you will receive an email to confirm and this will also include a weblink to a Google Form which is where you submit your time.

After each week and submission of times, results will be collated and we will post a leader board on our social media pages and on this webpage.


We would also love to hear about your 5k journey and see and share any photos you would like to share with us of you taking part. Please send these to
