Tackle the Great Aberdeen Run, Scotland’s newest half marathon, and explore the Granite City like never before.
As you tour the city you will take the picturesque Brig o Balgownie across the Don towards the historic cobbles of Old Aberdeen. And, after a loop of Pittodrie Stadium, you will pass by the iconic Marischal College, the Kirk of St Nicholas, His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen Art Gallery, Robert Gordons College and the Union Terrace Gardens.
Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the city and race by its historic landmarks and stunning waterfront.
Thanks to research, over 400 people now survive cancer every day. This progress has only been possible thanks to the support of people like you. There’s good reason for optimism, but we can’t stop until everyone can live free from the fear of cancer.
