Youngsters Gearing Up For Glasgow

From toddlers to teenagers, the younger generation is gearing up for this year’s Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run. Super Saturday on 30 September will include a number of family events, including the Family Mile, Junior Run and Toddler Dash.

Seven-year-old Freya Brown from Glasgow, who was born with a heart condition, will be going the extra mile to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Charity. Freya was joined in the city’s George Square by Anna Wadrop and Adam Khairi, both five, to help promote the Great Scottish Run’s Super Saturday family events, which will take place the day before the 10k and half marathon events.

Alex Jackson, from organisers the Great Run Company, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many children participating this year. From toddlers to teenagers, Super Saturday offers something for everyone regardless of ability. Whether it’s the Toddler Dash, Family Mile or Junior Run, it’s the taking part that really counts.

“With just over six weeks to go until the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run, we’d urge parents to sign children up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Over 30,000 runners of all abilities are set to participate in the three-day event, with Sunday’s 10k and half marathon bringing the weekend to a close.
