Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run

Sat 1 Oct - Sun 2 Oct 2016

Over the weekend of 1-2 October, runners from all across the nation will descend on Glasgow for a fun filled weekend of running.

Kicking off the busy weekend is Super Saturday, when it's all about the family with a Toddler Dash, Family Mile and Junior Great Scottish Run.

On Sunday 2 October it's the adults' turn and they can choose from either a 10k or a half marathon challenge. Both events begin in George Square and weave around city centre routes that take in a number of Glasgow's most iconic landmarks such as Finnieston Crane, the Hydro and Pacific Quay, using different bridges to cross back and forth across the River Clyde.

Runners will be hoping for cool, cloudy conditions with a slight breeze. Check the Glasgow weather forecast for the conditions on race day.

Cheering spectators lining the route and bands on the run will provide much needed motivation as runners head towards their momentous finish on Glasgow Green, passing under the McLennan Arch, where they will collect their finisher's pack and medal.

The Sunday events also play host to the Business Challenge, open to small, medium and large businesses with male, female or mixed teams. A perfect way to get away from your desk, get fit with your colleagues and get some friendly rivalry going between local businesses.
