Scotstoun Open

Scotstoun Stadium reopened today. Our regular coaching sessions will resume this evening and our Road Runners are planning on leaving from the stadium as usual at 7pm.

We plan to reschedule Saturday’s cancelled Run, Jump and Throw sessions as soon as possible.


We've had a confirmed case of the Coronavirus at Scotstoun Stadium. One of the Scottish women's International rugby players has fallen ill.  As a result of this, today’s Rugby Match has been cancelled.

The infected player has been in the Stadium training this week and we don't know where she's been or what she’s touched.  Scottish Rugby have said that the player is being treated in a healthcare facility but is "otherwise well".

We’ve cancelled the Saturday morning Run, Jump and Throw Club and no one will be allowed access to the stadium ahead of a deep clean.

There’s every likelihood that the rugby players used a different area of the stadium and different doors, but the staff will have shared these areas.

I’ll be having follow up conversations with the management today and tomorrow and I’ll update when we have more information.

In an email from Glasgow Life, families were told that the decision to temporarily close the facility was taken in the "interests of the safety of staff and public".

"In conjunction with, and on the advice of, the appropriate public health agencies, we will reopen when it is deemed safe to do so," it said.

"The safety of everyone who uses or works at Scotstoun is our absolute priority and it will remain closed while we take appropriate cleaning measures.

"It will only reopen when appropriate public health agencies deem it safe."
