If you already have your own place in the Great Scottish Run then you can still be part of Team Red Cross. You’ll receive the same support as all other team members but you won’t have a fundraising target to reach – just raise as much as you can.
About the Great Scottish Run
The Great Scottish Run is the biggest weekend of running in Scotland with over 30,000 runners taking to the streets of Glasgow.
Starting in George Square, 10k runners will cross the River Clyde and pass iconic landmarks and buildings including The Hydro, The Finnieston Centre and Pacific Quay as they make their way toward the McLellan Arch and the finish line at Glasgow Green. Half marathon runners will also take a trip through Glasgow’s Bellahouston and Pollok parks.
Entertainment along the course includes a choir, bagpipers, drumming band, live music, charity cheering points and ‘Wall of Sound’ zones.
Why run with the British Red Cross?
The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. We’re part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and we believe in the power of kindness. Every step you take and every pound you raise will help fund this work.
As part of Team Red Cross you will be supported throughout your event preparation. Our local fundraiser based in Scotland will be on-hand to encourage you with your fundraising, answer any questions you have and to thank you for all of your hard work.
You will also receive:
- a comprehensive fundraising pack full of tips and advice to help you reach your sponsorship target
- dedicated support, including training advice
