Great Scottish Run – HM route recces

Are you doing the Great Scottish Run on the 4th October? If so, you have 6 complete weeks left to train for it – how is your training going?

Wc 24 Aug –
Wc 31 Aug –
Wc 7 Sep –
Wc 14 Sep –
Wc 21 Sep –
Wc 28 Sep –

If you’re struggling to get your training in – now might be a time to take the bull by the horns and follow my 7 week half marathon plan (start on week 2).

Anyway – back to routes – I’m helping a few people train for it, and I’ve done a couple of routes on the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon route which might be of help (you can download the pdf of the Half Marathon route here and the pdf of the 10k route here).

I always find it’s good to recce the route, or most of the route before you do the event so that you know what’s coming. Where the course goes and where the uphills and downhills are.

Of course – you can’t run over the Kingston Bridge just yet, but here are some 5.8 mile, 7.6 miles, 9 mile and 10 mile routes you could try.

5.8M GSR Half Marathon route (from BBC)

7.6M GSR Half Marathon route (from BBC)

7.6M GSR Half Marathon route including last few miles (from Queens Park)

9 mile GSR Half Marathon route

10 mile GSR Half Marathon route

Finally, here are some of my previous posts about the Great Scottish Run (but remember, the route changed a few years, so the route on my previous posts might be out of date).
