Glasgow Marathon

The London Marathon sparked a marathon running craze – not just a ‘jogging boom’ because many of the new runners were or became serious athletes – and there were ‘Peoples’ Marathons’ held in cities across the land.   In Scotland there were several one-off events but the main races that appeared regularly throughout the 80’s at least were in Aberdeen, Dundee, Forres, Glasgow, Inverclyde, Lochaber and Shettleston.  None of these is extant and we now have profiles of the Black Isle Marathon, the Loch Rannoch Marathon, and four smaller ones (Caithness, Benbecula, Galloway and Easter Ross) and are working on the Edinburgh Marathon.
