With thousands of supporters lining the streets, music and bands along the route, cheering points and performances from some of Scotland’s finest bagpipers, the Great Scottish Run is a run not to be missed.
With events taking place on the Super Saturday and a 10k or half marathon distance on the Sunday, there's something to suit everybody!
The Super Saturday offers family focused events such as the 100m toddler dash, the 2.5K junior Great Scottish Run or even Great Scottish Run Family Mile - meaning the whole family can enjoy taking part in the event.
Starting in George Square, the half marathon route takes in famous venues from the 2014 Commonwealth Games, crosses over the River Clyde and will take you through Pollok Park and Bellahouston Park before you finish at the grandstand on Glasgow Green.
The 10k route is a shorter adaptation of the half marathon that hugs the Rover Clyde and will take you past some of Glasgow’s most iconic landmarks such as The Hydro, Pacific Quay and the McLennan Arch.

How you can help young people
£30 ould pay for an hour of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse, who will understand the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and specialise in the best treatment for the cancers that affect this age group.
£50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find out about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
