Tickets for the Scottish Cycling, Running and Outdoors Pursuits Show are now on sale. The show which launched successfully last year is back bigger and better in 2017 for three days (March 10-12) at the SECC in Glasgow.

The 2016 event showcased 100 industry leading brands including top running names Newton, On, Altra, Ronhill, Hilly, Craft, Kalenji and CEP Sportswear! Expect details of the big names attending this year over the next two weeks.

One of the big attractions of 2016 was a great list of top local presenters including Marco and Debbie Consani and Colin Thomas, the blogger whose investigation led to the remeasurement of the Great Scottish Run course. The announcement about the 2017 guest list is coming soon.  

Visiting runners will want to put their sprinting techniques to the test at the indoor track with the opportunity to use professional starting blocks. Organisers are planning a marathon challenge where you could win a place at New York City Marathon. Hampden Sports Clinic return for 2017 and will be offering bio metric testing, so you can ensure your body is looked after.

A show highlight comes on the opening day - Friday March 10 - when ultra-marathon cyclist Katie Ford aims to break the Guinness World Book of Records greatest simulated distance on a static cycle in 12 hours. Come along and witness history!  

For runners looking to add cross training sessions in 2017 there will be the opportunity to book taster spinning classes with Boiler Room Fitness as well as a range of classes in the Active Zone with David Lloyd and North Lanarkshire Leisure at the show! And what’s more you can pre book classes on the website for free!  There will be a number of different activities to choose from including exercises for cardio, strength and conditioning for the mind and body.
