Running for a charity

Whilst you do not need to run for charity you are encouraged to consider one of the Big Fun Run’s Official Charities. There are many to choose from, including DebRA, Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, Sick Kids Foundation, Alzheimer Scotland, MacMillan Cancer Support and the SSPCA.  You can select from over 70 different charities on the Big Fun Run website.

Runners who nominate an official charity qualify for a discounted entry fee and will receive a fundraising pack from their nominated charity.  By nominating a charity you will be expected to fundraise sponsorship on behalf of your nominated charity.

You can also run for a charity of your choice not listed on the official Fun Run website.

The Race

The start/finish area is located with the cycle track of Bellahouston Park.   This is located on the south-west side of the Park.  The nearest pedestrian access is via Gates on Mosspark Boulevard.   The start/finish area will be indicated by a large inflatable archway.

You can run or walk the race.  It’s the taking part that counts!  All finishers receive a goody bag, refreshment and medal.

Parking

There is no parking or vehicle access within Bellahouston Park, but pedestrian access is available via all entrances.  There is limited parking available by Moss Park Boulevard, and there are a few car parks at the opposite end of the park to where the race begins.  You may have to walk 10-15 minutes to the starting area, so make sure that you plan your journey accordingly.
