Run Portlethen is a new event for the North East of Scotland. It is organised by Sportlethen Community Sports Hub.

Run Portlethen 2018 has been made possible by funding from GoLive:GetActive which came from the European Glasgow Championships 2018.  The funding was directed towards encouraging the inactive to get active and increase confidence of those that are currently disengaged from activity to get involved and grow their confidence. In the case of Run Portlethen, we are specifically looking to:

  • Promote inclusiveness on a recreational basis within a family orientated category run.
  • Encourage the growth of female participation and reducing barriers to participation (such as confidence) for females
  • Improve physical and mental health and wellbeing through participation

There are currently 8 Community Sports Hubs in the Aberdeenshire area. Aberdeenshire Council works in Partnership with SportScotland to bring together sport clubs and key local partners. This is to improve the health and well being of local people through sports by

  • increasing participation in sports
  • engaging the local community
  • promoting community leadership
  • offering a range of sporting opportunitiesbringing partners, groups and people together
