Bank Of Scotland Great Scottish Run - 5th Oct 2014

The Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run is a great event organised by NOVA International where anyone can take part to run for charity or just for fun!  There are options to run either the 10K or the Half Marathon, so whether you want to ease into it or really challenge yourself there's something for you!
For more information, or to sign up for reminder about next years race, have a look at the website HERE.
In preparation for the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run 10K, we offer some great courses to help you get ready for the event!  Whether you are a complete beginner, or returning to running after a break we have something on offer for you!  Have a look at our courses below and feel free to give us a call for more infomation on 0141 287 3831.


Have you been wanting to get out running but anxious of doing it alone? Our great beginners courses are for people who have no running experience but are wanting to get out there and give it a go! These courses begin with alternating approximately three minutes jogging / three minutes walking and will increase in running time and distance over the 12 week period up to the 10k distance. It's a great way to ease yourself in and build up your fitness levels to get ready for the race, meet some new people with a similar level of experience, plus you have the benefit of our helpful and friendly coaches to help you all the way!

Our courses for the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run 10K will begin in July. Each course runs twice per week, see below the dates of the courses, find one that suits you and give us a call  on 0800 027 0470 to book your place!

If you have been running regularly or you have previously participated in one of our beginners' courses and have maintained a basic fitness level these courses will be too basic for you. In this case, we would recommend our refreshers course or network sessions. Have a look below for some more information.  


Our refreshers courses are designed for those of you who have done a bit of running or are able to run for approximately 15-20 minutes without stopping, but don't feel that you're ready to take on the challenge of a 10K on your own.

These courses are ideal if you have previously participated in one of our 10k beginners courses and want to increase your mileage back up to the 10k distance.

The dates and times for our 10K refreshers are in the table below. Have a look to see what suits you and call 0800 027 0470 to book!
