Pedal for Scotland Glasgow to Edinburgh Bike Ride, George Square, 0131 657 4393, 9am, Sun 15 Sep; Great Scottish Run and Junior Scottish

Run, Glasgow Green, 0141 248 9909, 10am, Sun 8 Sep.

Glasgow? Healthy? Surely the most exercise anyone gets is when they get

off the couch and walk to the kitchen for another fry up. Wrong. Glasgow has taken its ‘unhealthiest city in Europe’ reputation to heart and decided

it’s time to get fit.

For the first time ever it’s having a Health Week which looks at the health of the people and the role played by schools and local authorities. There will be events happening in schools and work places as well as food demonstrations by Nick Nairn in Buchanan Galleries and a continental market in Sauchiehall Street. If exercise is more your thing, there are

plenty of opportunities to get sporty.

The first sporting events are the Great Scottish Run and the Junior Scottish Run when hundreds of people will take to the streets of Glasgow and run a half marathon through the city. The route heads from Glasgow Green through the south of the city and is an incredible sight .

For those who prefer to do their sport on two wheels there is the Pedal for Scotland event which will have over 1000 riders cycling the 50 miles from George Square to Edinburgh. This is a fun event for all ages and stages with plenty of rest, snack, drink and maintenance stops along the way. Not only does it get you fit and off the couch but it also benefits both Children 1st and Barnardo’s Scotland, the two main charities for the event. Go on, get on your bike. (Jane Hamilton)
