Great Scottish Run

Event Date: Sun 30th September 2018

Take on a 10K or Half Marathon through the streets of Glasgow and help the Rangers Charity Foundation make a big difference on behalf of the Rangers Family!

Both distances take in many key city landmarks, such as The Hydro, The Finnieston Crane and Pacific Quay. All runners will be entertained on the day with choirs, bagpipers and drumming bands.

To sign up for this event, simply register with the event organiser at www.greatscottishrun.com. Once you have your place, let us know by emailing rangerscharity@rangers.co.uk and we will send you out a race pack and running top. 

We are here to support you every step of the way and will provide all runners challenging themselves on behalf of the Foundation with:

·         A free Rangers Charity Foundation running vest

·         A fundraising pack full of ideas, hints and tips to help you boost your total

·         Access to 2 x training sessions at the Hummel Training Centre on the run up to the event

There is no minimum sponsorship pledge, we just ask that you raise as much as you can.  Every single person who raises £100+ will of course become a True Blue Hero, and be invited along to an exclusive reception at Ibrox to receive a medal from a first team player.

Last year a team of almost 50 runners donned Rangers running vests and raised thousands of pounds for the Foundation.

Running this year for the Foundation means you will be raising funds to support our work in the community, our projects with our charity partners and our own Rangers Charity Dream Fund.

Last year our charity partners included Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, whose Schiehallion Appeal - which aims to help Scotland’s kids beat cancer - we donated to.

The Rangers Charity Dream Fund is used to pay for special Rangers experiences throughout the season for children and adults whose lives have been impacted by the likes of disability, illness or other difficult circumstances.

It is made up of three exclusive experiences including the behind the scenes Dream Day which involves attendees meeting the entire first team squad and watching them train at the Rangers Football Centre before heading to Ibrox for lunch and a tour.

The Dream Matchday Experience sees guests given tickets to watch a Rangers game in style in a hospitality box at Ibrox and get the chance to meet a first team player.

A Dream Letter from the Foundation includes a signed photograph or souvenir pack and a letter from a Rangers player.

If you have any questions, you can get in touch by calling 0141 580 8775 or emailing rangerscharity@rangers.co.uk

Please note, you must be 15 or over on the day of the event in order to run in the 10K and 17 or over to take part in the half marathon.
