Real or virtual Supernova Run lights up Scottish race calendar

One of Scotland's most atmospheric events Supernova Run has March dates scheduled for 2021 & virtual option available right now

As the vaccine programme gets moving across the UK, the running community is looking forward with cautious optimism to the time when our favourite events are going ahead. Events like the dramatic Supernova Run which is set to return on 19, 20 & 21 March at its iconic Kelpies venue near Falkirk.

This event is so popular that organisers need three weekend slots (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)  to cater for demand. The big attraction is the spectacular setting with brightly lit 30-metre-high statues – representing the dusk-loving water creatures of Scottish folklore – forming an impressive backdrop.

On race night, the 300-ton figures are illuminated further by the headtorches of the hundreds of participants who create a carnival atmosphere. It's a real family and friends occasion with parents, kids and grandparents and groups of buddies all enjoying the fun at this great 5k.

If you can't wait until March and want to give your training a boost right now then organisers have created the Supernova Virtual Winter Challenge, to motivate you to keep your fitness up over the more challenging months.

They've also put together a brilliant selection of goodies as a reward for your efforts:

  • Supernova head torch
  • Supernova neck scarf
  • Supernova duffle bag
  • Supernova foil blanket
  • Stunning Supernova medal keychain and lanyard
  • Personalised finisher certificate

  • Personalised Event Information Pack, to help you prepare for your challenge
  • Downloadable participation number
  • Supernova Virtual Winter Challenge audio countdown to kick start your challenge in style!
