The Course


The 10k course is a shorter adaptation of the half marathon but shares many of the key landmarks with the longer route. Starting in George Square in the centre of the city, 10k runners will cross the River Clyde and pass iconic landmarks and buildings including The Hydro, The Finnieston Crane and Pacific Quay as they make their way toward the McLellan Arch and the finish line in Glasgow Green.

  • Runners cross the Clyde on four occasions using the Kingston Bridge, Clyde Arc, King George Bridge and Glasgow Bridge.
  • Aqua Pura water station at 6km
  • Entertainment along the course includes choir, bagpipers, drumming band, charity cheering points and our ‘Wall of Sound’.

NB The course is subject to change
