Plan your travel well in advance of the event and aim to arrive at the start around one hour before you are due to run. This will ensure you have plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the facilities, relax and properly prepare for the run.
Glasgow is well serviced by public transport and we strongly recommend that you make use of the excellent public transport network. We have worked closely with the relevant agencies to ensure that the services are running as fast as they can, however we still recommend that you allow plenty of time for your journey as it may take slightly longer than normal.

Free parking is available at Albion Road Car park (next to Ibrox) – only a 5 minute walk to the start line and outside of the road closures. It will operate on a 1st come 1st served basis. Please note that due to a football match kicking off at 15.30 at Ibrox Stadium this car park will close at 14.00.
Please be aware there are numerous road closures in place for the event and these will be different to previous years. Diversions will be out in place but we recommend you use public transport where at all possible.
The SPT Subway will open from 07:20 with first trains leaving from 07:30. Your entry into the event gets you 2 free return tickets on the SPT Subway (valid on Sunday 17 May 2015 only). Please tear the voucher off your run number and exchange it for your tickets at the station ticket office on the morning of the run. Take the subway to Shields Road or Buchanan Bus Station and use the shuttle bus service to get you to the start line.
A free shuttle bus service will be in operating from two locations and will take runners and their spectators to the start.
• Buchanan Bus Station
• Shields Road Subway
Buses will start at 07:30 with the last bus leaving both locations at 09:30. Return buses will pick up from Dumbreck Road (close to Fleurs Avenue) starting at 10:30, with the last bus leaving Dumbreck Road at 13:30. You are advised to allow 1 hour for this journey as there is a high demand for this service and queues are expected.
If you prefer to walk from Shields Road, it will take you approximately 25 minutes to walk.
