AJ Bell Great Scottish Run
What Makes it Great?
Entries for the AJ Bell Great Scottish Run are open. With a city centre start and finish, the AJ Bell Great Scottish Run is a celebration of everything that makes Glasgow truly great: inspiring urban architecture, green spaces, history, music, strength, spirit and, of course, great people, personality and humour. Thousands of runners take part each year to challenge themselves and to raise money for good causes. And Scotland’s friendliest city always delivers on the support front too, with crowds of locals turning out each year to cheer and high-five from beginning to end. Plus there’s medals, finisher t-shirts and bragging rights for all!

Imagine if you had to struggle to breathe every day just from getting out of bed. Or you were living constantly worried about your heart or scared that you might have another stroke at any moment. Living with the reality of a long term health condition can be confusing and isolating. Every day activities such as picking up a knife and fork, making a cup of tea or leaving the house can feel like a massive challenge. Today, one in five people in Scotland are living with the effects of chest, heart and stroke conditions. More people than ever before need our stroke nurses, rehabilitation support workers and peer support groups. Run for us so that we can support more people to take back their lives, regain their confidence and independence and live life to the full. Take on the challenge.

The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity. But what is a stroke? It’s a brain attack, which happens when the blood supply to the brain is cut off, caused by a clot or bleeding in the brain. It can change lives in an instant. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke and that with the power of research and treatment, more lives can be saved too.
But we need you to help make this possible. Sign up for the Great Scottish Run for #TeamStroke today to make a difference and you’ll be supported every step of the way by our dedicated events team.
