This time last year our running community were busy training for all the big events of the upcoming season, and even though they had to be cancelled, we know you carried on, and some people even took up running for the first time in 2020 to keep yourselves motivated and active when there were very few alternatives.
This year there are some great events and challenges coming up, whether you’re taking part in a challenge yourself, joining in with thousands of people UK-wide or, fingers crossed, rocking up to George Square on 3rd October to get a PB for the half-marathon. There’s something for everyone and runners of all abilities.
Here’s a few we thought you might enjoy. If you would like to take part to raise funds for Revive, then drop me a message and I can sort you out with a Revive tech tshirt and show you how to set up a fundraising page on Justgiving.
