||The Tom Scott Road is an annual 10 mile Road Race
held in memory of a local man who was tragically killed whilst
travelling home from a race in the North of England. Tom Scott, who was
on the brink of a British Olympic place in the marathon used to run from
his house in Law Village to his place of work in Motherwell. Up until
fairly recently the race actually finished at the factory where he
worked, but more recently this has been moved to Strathclyde Park.
Unfortunately, due to receiving no co-operation from the local Police,
the race is now run within the confinements of Strathclyde and Hamilton
Palace Parks. The
race has attracted many of Scotland's top distance athletes throughout
the years and remains one of the top races in the country.
