After the launch of the UK wide ‘Supernova Run’ Series earlier this year, the debut event in Scotland at Helix Park and the Kelpies took place on Saturday night and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Thousands of runners were kitted out in fancy dress and colourful clothing to embark on a nighttime 5km run around the iconic Scottish landmark. With it being a timed run, the event catered for all different ages and abilities with many groups of family and friends deciding to walk around the course taking in the unique setting.

Event Director Sandra Scott said: “The first Supernova Run held in Scotland at Helix Park and the Kelpies was a huge success. It was fantastic to bring such a unique event to an iconic Scottish landmark and watch over 2,000 runners have an enjoyable time with their family and friends, whilst completing a 5K!”

“The beauty of this event is that it can cater for all abilities – runners can decide their own speed, or if they just want to stroll around with their family, taking everything in as they do so.”

“Thanks to everyone involved, including the amazing Race Crew and volunteers, as without them it could not be possible.”

“Entries are already open for 2016 and due to the exceptional demand for this year’s event, we would recommend you secure your entry as early as possible.”

Early bird entries for 2016 are now open until 22nd November, for more information and to enter visit
