The Course


The decision to take on 13.1 miles should not be taken lightly; it requires a good level of fitness and a dedication to training. The rewards for your hard work in the build-up are all worth it however. The course will once again pass many of the iconic venues that feature in Scotland’s biggest city, including Nelson’s Monument, the Clyde Arc and the Finnieston Crane.

  • Starting in George Square in the heart of the city centre. Runners cross the Clyde twice using the Kingston Bridge and Clyde Arc.
  • From the city centre streets to the peace of Pollok Park – every mile is different.
  • Aqua Pura will be available at regular points along the route. There will also be a run-through shower around 8 miles.
  • Entertainment along the route will include bagpipers, drumming bands, live music, charity cheering points and our ‘Wall of Sound’ zones.
