The Simplyhealth Great Women’s Run is the perfect opportunity to get your running buddies together to take on Glasgow's largest women’s only running event. 

Whether you walk, run or jog the 10k or NEW 3k distance, you will all achieve that amazing finish line feeling and be able to celebrate in style in the heart of Glasgow’s West End.

“The new route was awesome”, “The atmosphere was electric” & “Amazing entertainment on course” were just some of the comments that we received last year and 2017 is set to be even bigger once again…so what are you waiting for…sign up to today and be part of something GREAT!


10K Course

The scenic 10k route through the west end and along the quayside takes in some of Glasgow's most iconic buildings including Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow University, The Science Centre & the SSE Hydro to name a few, before finishing in Kelvingrove Park. 

Your favourite running playlist won't be needed to help keep you going as our friends at Capital Radio will be on course with their sound stage as well as local 'Bands on the Run' and Scottish Pipers to make it a real musical movement that will keep you motivated all the way to the finish line. 

Finishers will receive a special goody bag including a medal, technical T-shirt, water and lots of goodies.

Please note: the course may be subject to change.

3K Course

NEW for 2017 is a 3k course for those that want to be part of the day but don’t want to take on the 10k route just yet. This is an ideal course if you're new to running or on a new fitness plan.

The 3k course will also have a special wave for ‘mummys-n-buggies’ so that mums can take part with their newest family members. Any runners with buggies will be asked to start at the rear of the 3k wave. 

For information on when it is safe to start running with your child or post pregnancy please consult your doctor. 

Places for the 3k are limited in year 1 so sign up early to avoid disappointment.

Finishers will receive a medal and bottle of water post race. 

Please note: the course may be subject to change.
