Scottish music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland are reimagining the traditional charity run this summer with their ‘vertical running’ challenge – Race the Roof - taking place at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on Sunday August 20th 2017.
Race the Roof will be Scotland’s ﬁrst tower running challenge and is set to attract a thousand participants age 16 and over, of all running abilities, to run a 2km course, beginning outside the SSE Hydro before ascending to the finish line at the top of the arena.
The race will take place in staggered starts throughout the afternoon and when runners have completed the course they can enjoy food, massages and music from live DJs throughout the afternoon. A great opportunity for families, friends and colleagues to dust off the running shoes, get active and raise money for a brilliant cause.
Registration fee £5 • Sponsor pledge £50
Registration fee £10 • Sponsor pledge £300
To help you raise the sponsor pledge, all entrants will be given a personalised Everyday Hero sponsor page.
All of our Race the Roof runners will receive the very best support from us, including;
Nordoff Robbins Scotland is the country’s largest music therapy charity and has been providing music therapy to some of the most isolated people in our communities for over 20 years.
Faced with unprecedented demand, the charity needs to raise funds to increase the therapist team. You can help us achieve that!
We need to raise £50,000 from Race the Roof. Then we can change the lives of 100 children and adults who are living with conditions from autism to stroke, learning difficulties to dementia.
