Great Women's 10K

Join us for Scotland’s biggest women-only running event which sees thousands of women from all walks of life hit the streets of Glasgow for a fun day out filled with laughter, achievement and celebration. Whether you run, walk or jog everyone experiences an amazing finish line feeling when they cross the finish line to the cheers from hundreds of spectators and they can say ‘I did it!!’

This is the event to get your team of running chums together and motivate one another through the training and then take on the challenge together. And what better way to celebrate your achievement than joining the finishers post-race party. Leave the men at home and enjoy a fun day out with friends.

If you need that extra incentive, why not raise funds for our new charity partner the STV Children's Appeal while running this event. Every single penny you raise stays in Scotland to support the children who need it most.
