A Glasgow-based LGBTI running club is to host its “Rainbow Run” later this month,
To celebrate this year’s LGBT History Month, Glasgow FrontRunners are hosting their annual Rainbow Run on Sunday 21st February.
Participants should meet at the Arc: Health and Fitness (Caledonian University) on Cowcaddens Road for an 11am start.
The run is open to people of all experience and abilities. It is also free and there’s no need to book – participants are simplt invited to turn up on the day.
The club will have trained Jog Leaders on hand to guide you through the three 5km, 7.5km and 10km canal running routes – participants can decide on the day which distance they wish to attempt. The event is intended to be very relaxed, allowing athletes to run at their own pace.
In order to create “the rainbow”, Glasgow Frontrunners are asking everyone taking part to wear a suitable colour according to your month of birth. Runners born in January and February are being asked to wear red; those born in March and April are requested to wear orange attire; people born in May and June should wear yellow; participants born in July and August should wear green; those born in September and october should wear blue and runners whose birthdays are in November and December are asked to wear purple or indigo.
The club promises that, as always, there will be a cake stall at the finish!
