You will be able to choose from the following:

Wave 1 – Time Focus (Challenger)
This wave is for those ladies who would like to concentrate on getting a faster time, ideal for regular and club runners. This wave will also have a musical warm-up to get you ready to hit those PBs.

Wave 2 – 80s music
Think Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston…the 80’s were jam-packed full of incredibly catchy songs, so enjoy a selection of the greatest hits guaranteed to get your feet moving!

Wave 3 – 90s music
Who could forget the music from the 90s? True 'girl-power' dominated the charts with hits from the Spice Girls and Britney it's no wonder we still remember all the words 20 years later!  Don't forget, the 90’s also gave us rock classics from Nirvana, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Green Day.

Wave 4 – Now music (noughties and now)
The day wouldn’t be complete without a bit of Bruno Mars and Pharrell Williams to get your motivation levels sky-high, not to mention a few tracks from Scottish legend, Calvin Harris.  There's no shortage of hits from the 'Now' era, which includes number ones from bands like Oasis and Blur, through to solo artists such as Taylor Swift and Jay Z.

We’re looking forward to seeing you for a running party on the streets of Glasgow!

Event location

Scotland's biggest city has a population of over 2.3 million people and boasts a vibrant city centre with a selection of popular bars, restaurants and shops.

Many would say Glasgow is an architect’s dream, with a host of beautiful buildings and structures both old and new; many of which are associated with the works and legacy of Charles Rennie Macintosh.

Known for its friendly atmosphere, Glasgow is a great place to come to enjoy a taste of everything Scottish – whether it’s a spot of skiing at Snow Factor, a walk along the Firth of Clyde or a trip to the nearby nature reserves, the city and surrounding areas are well worth a visit.
