The course has been officially measured. Bibs and chips can be picked up on the day of the race between 8.30am-9.15am at the Congregation Point.OUTrun is organized by Glasgow FrontRunners (GFR), Scotland's largest LGBT+ running club. Our goal is to highlight and promote LGBT participation in sport. GFR club runners have benefited from the many events organized by other local running groups, OUTrun is our way of giving something back to the wider running community by providing an additional running event to the race calendar. We hope that members from all areas of the running community will come along and help us celebrate with a fun and scenic run in the West End of Glasgow! For more information about our club and what we do see our webpage or Facebook page.
Registration for Trans / Non-Binary: Currently registration for this event requires entrants to register their gender identity as either male or female. This is because OUTrun operates under UK Athletics/Scottish Athletics rules (UKA/SA). We must do this so that the event can receive a UKA/SA permit and so be fully insured. However, GFR has been working with SA along with Edinburgh FrontRunners and LEAP Sports Scotland with the aim of recognising broader diversity. Recent changes at SA has been that registration details will soon permit greater diversity in gender recognition. In addition, we hope that this will soon extend to events such as OUTrun. Prize giving is similarly constrained by UKA/SA rules, and so OUTrun will be awarding a mix of gender, age, and non-gender based prizes to runners.
