A Glasgow-based LGBTI running club celebrated LGBT History Month with its most successful “Rainbow Run” to date.
Glasgow Frontrunners organises a run annually along the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal, in which runners are allocated a different T-shirt colour to form a rainbow to contrast against the bleak winter sky. The most recent run was held on Sunday 21st February.
The run is always open to people of all experience and abilities, and this year over 100 partipants were involved – both club members and visitors.
Jog Leaders were on hand to help those taking part along their chosen route – there were three different routes of 5km, 7.5km and 10km in length. There was also a warm up jog prior to the main event and an opportunity to run with – and, inevitably, be photographed with – Jog Scotty, the Jog Scotland mascot.
Tahnee Conn, from Glasgow Frontrunners, confirmed that the club had raised over £350 for the Terrence Higgins Trust – one of Scotland’s leading sexual health charities and wished to thank everyone involved for “helping us to achieve our best Rainbow Run yet”.
Glasgow Frontrunners is an award-winning inclusive community based road-running group with strong links to the LGBTI community. It hosts regular runs for athletes of all abilities to help them get the most of their running with support from Jog Scotland coaches, and new members are always welcome.
