Calling all young runners for our AJ Bell Great Scottish Mini and Junior Run start line! Bring your crazy costumes and your wicked sense of humour along to George Square and we’ll provide the atmosphere, the tunes and the high fives. Toddlers, Minis and Juniors are all welcome to take on our 70m Toddler Dash, 1 mile mini race or 2.5km supercharged junior sprint – and have plenty of fun while you’re doing it. Music blasting? Check. Phenomenal local support? Check. All we need now is *you* Glasgow.

Find your superpower!

We want each and every one of our young runners, and spectators, to discover their own superpower – whether it’s racing, fundraising or being a superstar spectator. We’re also inviting our enthusiastic runners (big and small!) to come in superhero fancy dress on the day! We’re thinking capes, eye masks and something else to showcase your own power…

Toddler Dash (Up to 3 yrs) and Mini entrants (3-8 yrs) must run with a parent, each child should be entered into the event. Junior entrants do not need to be accompanied by an adult although this can be requested upon entry if required, each child should be entered into the event. The Toddler Dash is free to enter, but places are limited. If you have any event queries, see our FAQ section here.
