The north east of Scotland is gearing up for one of the region's biggest running events tomorrow - the City of Aberdeen Baker Hughes 10K Running Festival. Now in its 27th year, the festival includes a 10k race, wheelchair race, school race and a family fun run.
Congratulations to SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE readers Darren Mullen and Lesley McNab who each won a pair of New Balance shoes from Greaves Sports in their recent Facebook competition!
For those thinking of entering the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run half marathon or 10K this year, it'll pay to get in early. Organisers are offering the first 6,000 entrants a £4 discount for either race on 6 October.
Typically it is an honour bestowed on only the world's greatest marathon runners, but one member of the masses made a unique attempt to lead last month's Virgin London Marathon all in the name of charity.
All 15 of the runners competing in this year's Brathay 10 in 10 have successfully reached the half-way point in the challenge. As it stands, Rik Vercoe leads the field, having completed five marathons in an average of 3:28:45, with Phil Eccleston following closely behind (3:30:20).
With obstacle races such as Tough Mudder and Spartan Races growing in popularity, a new Scottish autumn 10k claims to offer an alternative to the 'alpha male orientated' races currently on offer. The Beast Race will be held near Banchory, Aberdeenshire on Sunday 29 September and features a wide variety of terrain including dense forest, undergrowth, heather, bog, rough dirt tracks and gravel pits.
Organisers of the 2014 Commonwealth Games have promised affordable tickets with two thirds going on sale at £25 or less. The first phase of ticket sales will be open from 19 August to 16 September and a ticketing guide, which includes an application form, will be available on 23 July.
What's the worst thing an opponent has done to you during a race? For Andrew Lemoncello the answer is something you would expect to see in a Bruce Lee film. The Fife AC runner found himself on the receiving end of a 'dropkick' on Saturday as he overtook an opponent in the Las Vegas 5K in Nevada.
More than 7,000 competitors braved wet conditions in Glasgow at the Bupa Great Women's 10K on Sunday (12 May). The largest female-only race in the UK was started by Olympic judo silver medallist Gemma Gibbons, with Bryan Burnett compere for the day.
A new high-end British running brand has been launched named after one of the sport's most legendary venues. The new Iffley Road brand references the famed Oxfordshire running track which played host to the first ever sub-four minute mile ran by Roger Bannister nearly 60 years ago.
