Run for yourself, run for others

Scottish Running Week is a very special week where the entire running community including clubs, jog groups, schools, offices, gyms and event organisers celebrate the positive impact that running and athletics has, while raising funds to support disadvantaged communities across Scotland in aid of Athletics Trust Scotland.
So whether you’re a club, school or business that likes to have fun while raising money for a worthwhile cause, get involved and register today!

About SRW

SRW is delighted to have The University of Edinburgh Sport as our headline partner

Last year, was Scotland’s first national running week and this year, we are back with an important theme is ‘inclusivity.’ And with this, all funds raised throughout the week will be used to give disadvantaged communities that are underrepresented in the sport a chance to take part in athletics and running. We will do this through our Transforming Lives Grant Fund – given out to organisations and clubs throughout Scotland who also share our mission. 
By taking part in Scottish Running Week, you will quite simply make our sport more inclusive for those who have disabilities, live in poverty and/or ethnically and culturally diverse communities.

When is the Scottish Running Week Festival 2024?

This year Scottish Running Week Festival will take place from Monday 3rd – 9th June 2024.

How can you get involved?

Throughout the week, we will encourage everyone to take part regardless of your background – we want everyone to run your run – your way! 
You, your workplace, your gym, or club can get involved in many ways and here is how you could get involved….
