SSAFA Glasgow 5k Fun Run and 1 Mile Walk

22 Apr 2017


Lace up your trainers and run to make a difference to the lives of our Armed Forces family.

Join our Fun Run (or 1 mile walk) on Saturday 22nd April 2017 at Glasgow Green 12pm.

Open to all ages and abilities this annual event caters for experienced as well as fun runners, serving personnel and their families. The event is especially suited to group entries who are encouraged to use their imagination for fancy dress (teams of 4). Please note that fancy dress is encouraged but not necessary. The course can also accomodate participants in wheelchairs.

Registration on the day will take place at the Winter Gardens (1030amTBC). A warm up taken by a qualified fitness instructor will commence at 1145am with the race starting at 12pm. Stewards and first aid will be present throughout and all runners will receive a SSAFA medal and goodie bag including water and fruit at the finish line. A trophy will also be presented to the winners.

There is no minimum sponsorship for this event we just ask that you raise as much as you can.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity supports serving personnel, veterans and their families across the UK. We began our work in 1885, and every year our staff and team of volunteers help over 60,000 people – from World War Two veterans to the young men and women recently returned from Afghanistan, and their families.

Money raised from this event will help SSAFA Glasgow continue to provide support for our forces and their families. In 2015 SSAFA volunteers worked on 3058 cases supporting veterans and their families in Scotland. 568 cases were within Glasgow and a further 476 across Lanarkshire, Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.

SSAFA is a Registered Charity No:210760 & No:SC038056.
