About parkrun in Glasgow
What are parkruns?
parkruns are free, weekly, 5km timed runs. Organised by volunteers who love running, parkruns are friendly and sociable events, for all abilities, that take place every week in local parks and public spaces. You just need to register before your very first parkrun.
Glasgow now has more events
parkrun in Glasgow has grown since our first event in Pollok park started in December 2008. There are now six 5k events and one 2k event across the city, and once you've registered with us, you can run any of our events - no need to re-register!
All Scottish events start at 9.30am, and all our Glasgow events have a first-timer's briefing at 9.20am. We look forward to welcoming you along, but please be sure to bring a printed copy of your barcode (phones don't scan) if you want a time for your run.
