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 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 participants 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.
If you have any queries about the event, including the accessibility of the route, then please head to our website, call us on 0141 212 0505  or
We can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
