Billed as a challenging obstacle race that's different to the usual Santa Dash, Sunday's Trailtroopers Tinsel Dash is a multi terrain event that incorporates natural obstacles alongside man-made ones. Participants will face a range of obstacles including slides, water, mud and possibly even snow.

Also on Sunday is Glasgow Frontrunners 5K Red Run For World AIDS Day. Participants at the non-timed run are invited to dress in red, the traditional colour of HIV awareness.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, and remember you can check our race listings for your results!
