Collecting your race number

We strongly encourage you to collect your race number in advance from our sponsors achilles heel, 593 Great Western Rd, Glasgow G12 8HX. You may do so from Tuesday, 6 November until midday Saturday, 10 November. The shop is open from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. (or 6.30 p.m. on Thursday).

Numbers can also be collected on race day from Race HQ (500m from start) from 10 a.m. until 11.30 a.m.. It is likely to be very busy so please allow plenty of time.

Note anybody who accepted a place via the waiting list (on/after Sunday 4th November), must go to Race HQ on the day: These cannot be collected in advance from Achilles heel.

Your race number should be clearly attached to the front of your running top. It contains your timing chip, and will provide you with an accurate time.

There will be a bag drop at the school. Items are left entirely at the runner’s own risk.

There will be toilets and changing facilities (sorry, no showers) in the school, and portable toilets in the park near the finish area, on the way to the start from registration.
