1451 King James II of Scotland persuaded Pope
Nicholas V to grant
a bull authorising Bishop Turnbull of Glasgow to set
up a university.
550 years later, Prof. Neil Garrod (Dean of faculty of
Law and Financial Studies) is going to recreate the
journey of that papal bull from Rome to Glasgow, by
running the 1,500miles.
on April 23rd, Neil plans to be back in Glasgow for
the June 20th Commemoration Day. He’ll need to cover
over 25 miles per day!
