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, have an ongoing mission… to get Scotland active!

For the first time this year, 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.

The aim of the Community Challenge was to have each Scottish local authority represented on the 10k start line, with runners having followed a 10 week to 10k training program with support from a Great Run Company expert coach.

Our 2017 Community Challenge runners covered a range of abilities from never having taken on a run before to returning to running from time out to targeting a new personal best.
