On the go since 2004, the Men’s 10K Glasgow has firmly set itself as THE run for men in the west.
The life expectancy of a man in Scotland is, shockingly, still the lowest in Europe and three years less than in England and Wales. Suicide, in addition to other mental health problems, continues to be an issue of high significance to men in Scotland.
Suicide is the biggest killer of young people (18-34) in Scotland and almost three out of four suicides are by men. Our aim is to help change this, little by little – and the Men’s 10K is how we are doing it!

The Men’s 10K in Glasgow starts at the spectacular setting of the Riverside Transport Museum. The route heads East along the River Clyde and takes in the scenic views. Iconic buildings to look out for include the Glasgow Science Centre, The Armadillo, The SECC and the SSE Hydro and all within the first 2KM. The route then heads under the Kingston Bridge, crossing over the Clyde via George V Bridge, and back via Glasgow Bridge as you approach the halfway point.
The second half of the route will take you past the south side of George Square and down towards Glasgow Green, crossing the Clyde twice more via Crown Street and Kings Bridge before heading back towards George Square where cheering crowds await to help in one last effort to cross the finish line where you’ll receive your well earned medal, water and goodybag.
Since 2004, Men’s 10K runners have raised over £1 million for hundreds of amazing charities. If you’re looking for a reason to become a future Men’s 10K charity runner, then look no further!

Supporting people with dementia in Scotland to make sure nobody faces it alone.
Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland’s national dementia charity providing a 24-hour helpline, dementia resource centres and advisors whilst also funding vital research.
Every £9.38 raised can pay for an hour of support from their Freephone Dementia Helpline; £100 could help their Community Activity Organisers run a group like Music Memories or £880 could fund a day of dementia research.
This is a common concern but once you get signed up and start fundraising the team at Alzheimer Scotland will have plenty of tips for reaching (and smashing!) the target. If you think you're going to struggle, the best thing to do is have a chat with them as each charity has its own approach.
Just click 'Find out more now' and fill in the enquiry form to get their contact details - if you put your question in, someone from their team will get back to you.

Funding medical research projects to secure a future without prostate cancer.
Last year 56,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK. They are someone's grandfather, father, brother, or son.
Whilst prostate cancer is treatable in the prostate, once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and life-limiting. Our aim is simple: to fund the ground-breaking research into developing patient first treatments, which provide hope and a future for men and their families.
Thanks to our fundraisers, we have recently increased the number of medical research projects we fund by 175%. It is our hope that this will lead to further breakthroughs and the development of future therapies for men with prostate cancer.
