CELTIC FC Foundation are encouraging supporters, particularly those in the east and west of the country, to get active and raise funds to assist our projects for disadvantaged children, young people and adults, under the banner of HELP – Health, Equality, Learning and Poverty.
IN THE WEST – GREAT SCOTTISH RUN
Taking place in Glasgow on October 1 and October 2, 2016 the annual event allows participants to choose from either a 10k or half-marathon.
Runners will set off from George Square on a route that encompasses some of the city’s most spectacular sights – including a stunning view of Celtic Park from the Kingston Bridge – before finishing in the leafy surroundings of Glasgow Green.
We will assist you every step of the way and all participants will receive a fundraising pack including sponsor form and guidance to set up an online fundraising page, as well an official Celtic FC Foundation t-shirt.
The main event on Sunday, October 2 includes:
10k (entry fee £26)
Half-Marathon (entry fee £33)
The family day on Saturday, October 1 includes:
Toddler Dash (0-5years): 100m (entry is free)
Junior Run (9-15years): 2.5k (entry fee £7)
Family Mile (3-8years): 1 mile (entry fee adults/children £7)
IN THE EAST – KILTWALK EDINBURGH
Taking place on Sunday, September 18, 2016, the 26-mile Mighty Stride through the capital starts at Murrayfield Stadium and will have you passing through Gypsy Brae, Granton Harbour and Victoria Park, crossing the cobbles of Leith to then walk Edinburgh’s lovely Promenade. Then it’s back inland heading for Arthur’s Seat, and a glance at the Palace before hitting the home stretch to enjoy the final celebrations.
If 26 miles is a little too adventurous, you can sign up for the Big Stroll. Covering roughly half the distance, you’ll still get a chance to stretch your legs as you set off from Murrayfield and travel across the city.
If covering the whole city of Edinburgh isn’t for you, but you still want to get involved you can sign up for the Wee Wander. Setting off from Gypsy Brae, the little over five-mile trek will still get you back in time to enjoy the after party!
The registration fees are:
The Mighty Stride
26 miles (£31.62 adults and children aged 13-16)
The Big Stroll
12 miles (£31.62 adults and children aged 10-16)
The Wee Wander
5 miles (£13.20 adults; £7.20 children aged 5-16)
