Sign up to train at the Rangers Football Centre

Wed 9th August 2017

The Rangers Charity Foundation is offering fans the exclusive chance to train at the Rangers Football Centre and all you have to do is sign up to take part in the Great Scottish Run.

The not to be missed opportunity will see participants, who pledge to raise money for the Foundation, put through their paces  by a Rangers Community Coach.

Aimed at both the experienced and inexperienced runner two one hour-long sessions will take place on the evenings of 2nd and 16th of September ahead of the race weekend on October 1st.

Combining running, stretches and nutritional advice the sessions promise to leave participants better prepared whither they have signed up for the 10K or a half-marathon event.

As well as access to the training events runners who sign up to raise money for the Foundation will become part of the Rangers running team and be given a free Rangers Charity Foundation running vest.

There is no minimum sponsorship pledge, we just ask that you raise as much as you can and all money raised will be used to help us continue to be a force for good on behalf of the Rangers Family!

Every single person who raises £100+ will also be invited to a reception at Ibrox to receive a True Blue Hero medal from a first team player later in the season.

The Great Scottish Run itself promises to be an enjoyable event. 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 the Great Scottish Run, and to be eligible for our training, simply register 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. 

Please note, you must be 15 or over on the day of the event in order to run. There will be no shower or changing facilities available at the Rangers Football Centre training event. Runners are advised to arrive prepared to start in their usual running attire.

- The sessions at the Rangers Football Centre were organised after a planned training session at Ibrox had to be cancelled due to the date clashing with the Rangers vs Marseille friendly.
