University Challenge Returns To Great Scottish Run

Great Scottish RunUniversity and college students will be able to pit their wits against each other again as the ‘University Challenge’ returns for a second year at the Great Scottish Run on Sunday 4 October. The challenge was introduced last year with Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds, Glasgow University Hare and Hounds, and Dundee University all vying for the top spot.

Organisers of the Great Scottish Run are inviting universities and colleges from across Scotland to take part this year. Each team is made up of six runners – current students or staff members – and must include at least two females and two males.
 
The Great Scottish Run will sees thousands of participants start at George Square in the heart of Glasgow, following the iconic 10k and half marathon routes through the city before they enter Glasgow Green and reach the tree lined finish straight in the shadow of Nelson’s Monument.
