With just two days until the big day we are incredibly excited about going Off The Beatson Track and hope that you are too.

This year’s event is set to be the biggest, best and most yellow yet and we can’t wait to see you in your yellow t-shirts and fantastic fancy dress costumes as we turn the west end of Glasgow yellow in support of Beatson patients and their families.  

It’s not too late to register!

If you have friends, family or colleagues that have yet to sign up then don’t panic.
You can still register in the following way:

On the day - registration is available on Sunday from 10.00 at the Riverside Museum.

Timings for the day
Off The Beatson Track opens at 10.00 on Sunday 28th August.
Capital FM’s Garry Spence and Jennie Cook will be leading the festivities throughout the day. At 10.30 there will be a fun filled warm up from Glasgow’s Zumba Sisters to get you ready to go Off The Beatson Track.

At 11.00 the first wave (white wristband) of participants will be heading off on the route. With the second wave (yellow wristband) leaving at 11.10 and the third wave (silver wristband) at 11.20

*To ensure that Off The Beatson Track is a fun and safe event please make sure that you leave with your allocated wave group.  
Toilets will be available to all participants at The Riverside. These can be found on the ground floor of the museum. There will also be portable toilets along the route at the canal path just off Dorchester Ave. 
As always Off The Beatson Track will feature lots of attractions to keep you entertained before, during and after the walk so make sure to come back to the Riverside after you’ve completed the route. 
Don’t forget to take pictures and share these throughout the day by using the #offthebeatsontrack.
Plan your journey
We would strongly recommend you to take public transport on Sunday.
Partick train station is just a short walk from The Riverside and there are also frequent buses to Partick.  

Car parking at the Riverside Museum will be extremely limited on the day and will be available on a first come first served basis. If you do secure a parking space on the day, please purchase your pay and display ticket as normal at machines located throughout the car park. To park all day, you will need to pay at the pay and display and bring your ticket to collect a pass from the Beatson Cancer Charity marquee which entitles you to park at the Riverside for the full day. However, we strongly advise you not to travel by car unless absolutely necessary.
Safety First
Please pay close attention to all safety messages on the day. For your safety, our bright yellow event marshals will be placed along the route and at the Riverside Museum.
It is incredibly important that you follow instructions from the marshals along the route and be particularly careful where there is open water.
The route that we use is extremely popular so please be aware of pedestrians, runners and cyclists who will also be using the route and stick to one side of narrow paths.
If you have any queries about the event, including the accessibility of the route, call us on 0141 212 0505 or email
We can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
