Welcome to Bella!
We are one of Scotland's largest adult road running clubs, and are based in the South Side of Glasgow. If you're looking to develop and improve your running, we think we have something to offer you!
For the competitors, our men and women are amongst the most successful in the West of Scotland; if you're seeking to improve and develop, we have a fantastic group training schedule that will help you achieve your goals and targets; and for everybody who has struggled for motivation, we're here right through the year with an active competitive and social calendar to keep you motivated, and have lots of fun along the way.
So, please explore our website, find us on social media, and we look forward to seeing you soon! Details on what to expect if you fancy coming along are on our Try Running with us page.
We're proud of our recent award wins, with a number of local and national awards – including Scottish Athletics Impact and Innovation Club of the Year 2020. We think this reflects our amazing membership and volunteers, who all contribute so much to making our club a special place to be a member.
