Men's 10K Glasgow

The Perfect Father's Day Run

Glasgow will see thousands of men take to the streets on Father's Day for their very own 10K race...

On the go since 2004, the Men’s 10K Glasgow has firmly set itself as the ultimate run for men in the west. Make a positive difference to your life, or someone else’s and be part of something special - the Men's 10K continues to help thousands of guys on their journey to becoming fitter, healthier and happier.

Maybe you’ve not done any exercise in a while and need a goal to motivate you, maybe you want to challenge your mates, or maybe you want to raise some cash for a worthwhile cause – whatever your reason, the Men’s 10K is the perfect opportunity for you to lace up those trainers and make a difference, either to your own life or someone else’s.

Taking place in Glasgow on 18 June, this 10K is a fun and proactive way to engage men in Scotland in healthy physical activity and to promote health and wellbeing all year round. The brainchild of the Men’s Health Forum Scotland, the first Men’s 10K was organised as a focal point for raising awareness of men’s health issues. Consistently, each year, around 40% of the men taking part have never entered a running event before and organisers intentionally promote the event to men who are new to physical activity or have been inactive for a while.

The Glasgow run starts off at the spectacular setting of the Riverside Transport Museum and heads along the River Clyde – taking in the city's scenic views and landmarks. Iconic buildings to look out for include the Glasgow Science Centre, The Armadillo, The SECC and the SSE Hydro and all within the first 2K. A few Clyde crossings later runners will head back towards George Square where cheering crowds await to help in one last effort to cross the finish line.

If the Glasgow date is just a little too soon then the Edinburgh event will be taking place later in the year on 22 October.
