15,000 Runners, Major Corporate Partners, Extensive TV Coverage

The Challenge

The primary challenge is to ensure the safety of 15000 participants while keeping major traffic flows moving where possible. As well as several major road closures in the city centre and beyond and the wishes of multiple stakeholders to consider, Coneworx had an important event management and issue resolution role to play to ensure the event ran on schedule and any issues during the run were dealt with quickly and efficiently.

The Solution

Coneworx worked closely with the emergency services, Glasgow City Council and Transport Scotland to create a detailed installation and removal plan.  In addition Coneworx provided a large number of operatives to aid event management and two senior staff to help monitor city wide CCTV and react appropriately to any issues during the event.  While some disruption to traffic is inevitable during an event of this size, Coneworx’ detailed plan minimised any problems and ensured roads reopened on schedule.



With around 15,000 runners and many more spectators to consider, a robust plan is paramount.
