Getting Scotland Active


Community Challenge

The Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run is Scotland’s biggest weekend of running with over 30,000 runners from all walks of life taking on the 10k, half marathon and Super Saturday family and children events.

Our proud partner, Bank of Scotland, is on a mission… to get Scotland active!

Individuals across Scotland were encouraged to share their stories about what motivates them, what got them into running and why they wanted to take part in this year’s Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run 10k, with the aim of having each local authority represented on the start line on Sunday 1 October, with runners having followed a 10 week to 10k training program with support from a Great Run Company expert coach.

Our Community Challenge runners cover a range of abilities from never having taken on a run before to targeting a new personal best and are now gearing up for the big day.
