Race Listing

SpeysideAll eyes may be on Glasgow for the Great Scottish Run this weekend but there’s plenty of action elsewhere. Trail enthusiasts will be aiming to conquer the Devil’s Staircase at Glencoe Marathon on Sunday. The event incorporates the Mamores Half Marathon and Cornerstone Canter, providing dramatic views of the Scottish Highlands en route. Runners in Edinburgh will be saying ‘sayonara’ to conventional running gear as they don inflatable sumo suits at the Sumo Run in the Meadows. Kirkintilloch will again play host to the Neil McCover Memorial Half Marathon with the scenic and fast route taking competitors through East Dunbartonshire.

You can find lots of events and results on our race listings page and organisers can add their race details to our event listings by signing up here.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
