Aberdeen City Council
Aberdeen City Council

Aberdeen City Council is proud to be a partner in the Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run.

The Council is leading a period of unprecedented transformation, with significant investment being made to help realise the ambitions of a city already well established on the world stage. The inaugural event will provide an important opportunity to showcase our vibrant region.

From its roots in fishing and ship building through to oil and gas and renewable energy, Aberdeen has grown to become the modern, entrepreneurial hub we know today - a unique place where north-east traditions sit side by side with rich and diverse cultures from across the globe. With a growing reputation as a tourist destination, there are a wealth of attractions waiting to be discovered.

An innovative and engaging events programme is at the heart of Aberdeen City Council’s commitment to residents and visitors alike, with a year-round programme bringing hundreds of thousands of people together from near and far to celebrate everything from music and art to technology and sport.

As a Council we value the role sport and physical activity plays in providing opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives.

We take our responsibility to raise the profile of sport in Aberdeen seriously and are driving initiatives to increase opportunities for participation throughout the city - both to maximise the social, educational, health and economic benefits to our residents but also to nurture talent and ensure everyone has the chance to reach their potential.

The Great Aberdeen Run will play a crucial part in supporting the council’s aim to create a bright and energetic future for our city and we look forward to welcoming runners of all ages and abilities.
