The Fun Run

Gather at 10am for the big warm up, get on your marks, get set, and go at 10.30am.  It’s free, and you could hop, jump, walk, skip it… whatever you want – so no excuses!  And for everyone that completes the 5K Fun Run, there is a winner’s medal and goodie bag.

This is the seventh year of the 5K and there is a capacity of 4,000 runners.  This is an event not to be missed so tie up those trainers and make sure you’re there early for the fun warm up at 10am!

This is a great route for everyone to take part, whether you want to walk, jog or run through the streets of Glasgow East End with your friends or family and you can dress up and raise some funds for a charity of your choice then the Glasgow East 5K fun run is perfect for you.  There will be lots of entertainment along the route to cheer everyone on and create a great carnival atmosphere all the way back to Tollcross Park to prepare you for the Big Day OOT.

This year you will be able to register your group as well as your family on line. So if you are in a local youth group, jogging network, sport club then follow the easy instructions when registering to register your group.  Alternatively paper entry forms will be available from local facilities across Glasgow East from late March.
