Dig out your running shoes and challenge yourself at the Men’s 10K Glasgow on Sunday 18th June. Gather your friends and family and complete the route together, or set off on a solo run at this amazing city-centre 10K.
The Men’s 10K in Glasgow starts at the spectacular setting of the Riverside Transport Museum. The route heads East along the River Clyde and takes in the scenic views. Iconic buildings to look out for include the Glasgow Science Centre, The Armadillo, The SEC and the SSE Hydro and all within the first 2KM.
The route then heads over the Clyde and back, crossing over the ‘Squiggly Bridge’ and then George V Bridge. You will then start heading through the hustle and bustle of Glasgow’s city centre heading up Buchanan Street just before you hit half way!
The second half of the route will take you past the south side of George Square and down towards Glasgow Green, taking in the beautiful park including the infamous People’s Palace, before heading back towards George Square where cheering crowds await to help in one last effort to cross the finish line where you’ll receive your well-earned medal, water and goodybag.
Whether you’re a seasoned pro or it’s your very first 10K, this is the perfect event to challenge yourself and achieve something amazing.
By signing up for the Men’s 10K Glasgow, you’re making a difference.
By fundraising for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and pledging to raise a minimum sponsorship of £150, you’ll be making sure that no one has to feel scared and alone when they return home from hospital.

“It seemed like a good thing to do that would test me and I would also get something out of it.”
When Kenny Cooper’s sister died at the age of just 39 following a stroke, he knew he wanted to do something to keep her memory alive and raise awareness of the risk of stroke in young adults.
The 31 year old from Motherwell was determined to do something amazing in memory of his sister Claire, so decided to walk 5K every day in December.
He admits: “I’m not the fittest person and certainly not the most outdoorsy, so it seemed like a good thing to do that would test me and I would also get something out of it. My wife Stacey and our French bulldog Dave joined me on a lot of the walks.
“On days I struggled to get out or was tired, I just thought of my sister. Claire would have laughed at the thought of me walking out in the snow and rain!”
But raising over £2,500 as part of his December challenge wasn’t enough for Kenny. He has now signed up to take part in the Men’s 10K Glasgow to raise even more money in his sister’s memory.
It will be a huge challenge for him but he’s determined to run 10K, with friends and family cheering him on from the sidelines.
Whether you would like to raise money in memory of a loved one, have friends or family who are affected by our conditions, or would just like to help survivors across Scotland live their lives to the full, sign up now and join amazing people like Kenny
