Course Details


The Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run 10k is the perfect way to see the stunning Glasgow sights, which include The Hydro, Pacific Quay and the McLennan Arch. The course takes runners on a tour of the River Clyde, before heading back towards Glasgow Green for the big finish.

The 10k course is a shorter adaptation of the half marathon but shares many of the key landmarks with the longer route. Starting in George Square in the centre of the city, 10k runners will cross the River Clyde and pass iconic landmarks and buildings including The Hydro, The Finnieston Crane and Pacific Quay as they make their way toward the McLellan Arch and the finish line in Glasgow Green.

Runners cross the Clyde on four occasions using the Kingston Bridge, Clyde Arc, King George Bridge and Glasgow Bridge.
Aqua Pura water station at 6km
Entertainment along the course includes choir, bagpipers, drumming band, charity cheering points and our ‘Wall of Sound’.

Half Marathon

The course starts in George Square in the city centre, before taking runners past some of Glasgow’s finest venues and buildings. Runner cross over the River Clyde, as well as a taking a trip through Pollok Park and Bellahouston Park, before heading back for the grandstand finish on Glasgow Green.

The decision to take on 13.1 miles should not be taken lightly; it requires a good level of fitness and a dedication to training. The rewards for your hard work in the build-up however, are all worth it! The course will once again pass many of the iconic venues that feature in Scotland’s biggest city, including Nelson’s Monument, the Clyde Arc and the Finnieston Crane.

Starting in George Square in the heart of the city centre. Runners cross the Clyde twice using the Kingston Bridge and Clyde Arc.
From the city centre streets to the peace of Pollok Park – every mile is different.
